Astronauts to return from space after a year
27 February 2016 Current Affairs: Astronaut Scott Kelly is preparing to return to Earth after spending an unprecedented year on the International Space Station. Kelly has been in the process of finishing his collection of samples, some of which will return with him in the Soyuz capsule when it lands near Kazakhstan. Hes also been packing up because, even though there is limited space in the capsule — its nearly 23 feet long and nearly 9 feet in diameter — astronauts can bring 1½ kilograms (about 3 pounds) of items back with them.Most of Kellys items will be personal items that were given to him before he launched on March 27, 2015. The astronauts can also send other items back via SpaceX cargo spacecraft.
