SCOTT KELLY HAS BROKEN THE RECORD FOR LONGEST CONSECUTIVE TIME IN SPACE BY A US ASTRONAUT

The previous record holder was Spanish-American astronaut Michael López-Alegría, who spent 215 consecutive days in space in 2007. Today marks 216 consecutive days for Kelly, who launched into space on March 27th of this year. His number count is only going to grow, too, as he’s slated to spend a total of 342 days on the International Space Station before coming back home.

Congrats Scott, and @nasa too!
