Astronaut Scott Kelly aboard the International Space Station (ISS) for a ground-breaking endurance mission and is still upbeat after completing nine months in the space. “There’s still things we need to learn, but I think we’ve learned a lot of from this space station and our experience in space,” he said. “The long pole in the tent, so to speak, for going to Mars is the support of the nation, the support of our representatives in government and, of course, the money. It’s expensive and we have different priorities but I think it’s a trip that’s worth the investment”.
The astronaut had earlier tweeted a series of pictures including images of Indian cities, The Great Ganges and stunning night time image of Indian-Pakistan border captured at night last month Kelly has spent 415 days on ISS, the longest by an American astronaut. On October 16, he completed 383 days in space, breaking the record of US astronaut Mike Fincke, who had spent 382 cumulative days.
