For this mission, Scott Kelly of NASA, Mikhail Kornienko of Roscosmos are spending a year in space aboard the International Space Station. NASA describes, “Seven categories of human health research will occur with the inception of the One-Year Mission of Kelly and Kornienko. Researchers expect these investigations to yield beneficial knowledge on the medical, psychological and biomedical challenges faced by astronauts during long-duration spaceflight.”
