Scott Kelly said a year in space felt like 'forever'

NASA astronaut Scott Kelly said living on the International Space Station for a full year felt like much longer, The New York Times reports.

"I think the only big surprise was how long a year is," Kelly said at a news conference Friday. "It seemed like I lived there forever."

Kelly returned to Earth on Tuesday after traveling almost 144 million miles over 340 days.

Apparently, if you live in space long enough, even the salads on Earth seem exciting upon return. Julie Kliegman
