Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 43 Flight Engineer Scott Kelly of NASA was welcomed for his year-long mission in a call to the complex March 30 by NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, John Holdren, science advisor to President Obama and director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and former astronaut Mark Kelly. Speaking from Washington, Bolden greeted Kelly less than three days after Kelly’s launch to the station on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, with cosmonauts Gennady Padalka and Mikhail Kornienko of the Russian Federal Space Agency. Kelly and Kornienko will remain on the outpost through March 2016, conducting critical biomedical experiments that will expand the database needed to understand the potential effects of weightlessness on the human body for a trip to Mars.
