Astronaut Scott Kelly's One Year Mission and the Twin Study The longest American space voyage ever is now over and scientists are about to swarm over Scott Kelly. When the astronaut touched down yesterday in Kazakhstan, he set a record for the longest spaceflight by an American. Kelly now holds the record of 340 days in space… and comparison with his twin brother , former astronaut Mark Kelly, offers a unique opportunity. We hear what's in store for Kelly and from America's former record holder.

But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
