In 2014, a group of astronauts carried out more than 200 experiments in ISS within a short time period of six months
It seems like the missions of International Space Station is gradually progressing with the time. This year, NASA intends to send two American astronauts in ISS. They will carry out seven other experiments in this time period.
Scott Kelly and Mikhail Kornienko are extremely excited to spend one year in the orbit. Thus far, astronauts have spent maximum six months in the space. Hence, the accomplishment of the new mission would be a great success for the researchers.
The chief aim of this mission is to figure out the influence of space on the bodies of human beings. The entire research will focus on the mental and physical alterations of these astronauts. The scientist will closely analyze metabolism, mental health, microbes and physical performance of them.
As per the recent press release of NASA, the two astronauts will provide significant information regarding the medical, psychological and biomedical impact of space on human body.
Researchers wish to determine the affect of space on the first astronauts who will travel to Mars
Additionally, Scott Kelly will also work on another experiment simultaneously. He will work along with his twin brother, Mark Kelly. Scientists will execute similar test on the body of Mark. However, the only difference is that Mark will stay on Earth rather than ISS.
