Last week, American astronaut Scott Kelly returned from a yearlong stint aboard the International Space Station (well, not exactly a year—he was up there for 340 days). He was aboard the space station with Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko as a part of a study on the effects of long-term weightlessness on the human body; the study hopes to provide some solid insight on the viability of deep space missions.
Kelly touched town on March 1 nearly two inches taller (zero gravity will do that to a fella's spine) and a bit weaker. While he wasn't hanging out with Kornienko and corresponding with NASA, he put together one of the most amazing Instagram accounts in the history of the solar system.
Here are some of the best shots he snapped from ISS over the past year. These ought to make you eager for the world's first space tourism trip, which could be a thing in the very near future.
