Scott Kelly returns from a year in space

After Nearly A Year in Space, NASA's Scott Kelly Is Back on Earth

Scott Kelly
Article Excerpt: "... Kelly says after almost a year in space, he can't wait to jump in his pool back in Houston.

NASA doctors will closely study Kelly to observe the health effects of such an extended mission in space.

He'll get a very thorough medical exam because researchers say that, in the absence of gravity, bones become more brittle, fluids in the body move upward and vision sometimes shifts toward far-sightedness.
