The reins of the International Space Station were passed from NASA’s Scott Kelly to his NASA crewmate Tim Kopra during a ceremony on the orbital outpost on Feb. 29. Kelly is returning to Earth with cosmonauts Sergey Volkov and Mikhail Kornienko of Roscosmos March 2 to wrap up what for Kelly and Kornienko will be 340 days in space and six months in orbit for Volkov. During their year-long mission on the station, Kelly and Kornienko gathered valuable biomedical data on the long duration effects of weightlessness on the human body that will be used to formulate a human mission to Mars. Kopra remains on the station as commander along with Flight Engineers Yuri Malenchenko of Roscosmos and Tim Peake of the European Space Agency until early June.
