What Happens To An Astronaut When They Come Back From Space

“I use the bathroom and shuffle back to bed, wondering what I should do. Normally if I woke up feeling like this, I would go to the emergency room. But no one at the hospital will have seen symptoms of having been in space for a year.”

Astronaut Scott Kelly shares a fascinating look at what it’s like to come home after a year in space.

It will give you a whole new appreciation for astronauts, their willingness to allow their bodies to be used for science, and what it’s like to be a “test subject” for the rest of their lives.
