Astronauts Scott Kelly and Mikhail Tyurin to Spend a Year in Space!
It is very exciting, as the launch date of astronauts Scott Kelly and Mikhail Tyurin inches closer and closer. These men are scheduled for launch at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, on the 27th of March, from 2.40pm ET (6.40pm GMT), with take-off scheduled for 3.42pm! You can actually live stream this launch as well! Both of these brave astronauts will spend an entire year on the ISS, hoping to contribute to furthering the understanding of how the human body is affected in zero-g environments, and what us humans can do to relieve the problems we may face, especially if we are considering long term space journeys for future exploration.
