Cool, But....

From the New York Daily News: Veteran astronaut Scott Kelly could set an out-of-this-world record by spending the most consecutive days in space of any American in a single mission.
NASA announced Monday that Kelly, 48, will man an expedition in spring 2015 for one year at the International Space Station with Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko, 52.
Kelly, a native of West Orange, N.J., is the twin brother of Mark Kelly, himself a retired astronaut and the husband of former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. She stepped down last year after surviving a deadly shooting rampage outside of a Tucson grocery store in 2011.
NASA officials said Kelly and Kornienko will conduct research to help scientists better understand how space affects the human body.
This guy is going to live in a tin can for 1 year with another man, sharing everything.  I really, really hope they can get along and neither one snores or has some strange habits or body odo0rs.
It reminds me of this song:
