The longest American spaceflight in history will launch in 2015
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station typically spend no more than six months in space before returning to Earth. But in spring 2015, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly will begin a yearlong sojourn aboard the orbital outpost a voyage which, if successful, will become the longest spaceflight ever performed by an American.
Kelly will be joined by cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko (pictured above on the right). Both spacefarers have spent time aboard the ISS in the past, but neither has spent anywhere close to an entire year in space. The pair 's two-year training regimen, slated to begin early next year, will help prepare them for what NASA makes out to be one hell of a selfless mission:

The goal of their yearlong expedition aboard the orbiting laboratory is to understand better how the human body reacts and adapts to the harsh environment of space. Data from the 12-month expedition will help inform current assessments of crew performance and health and will determine better and validate countermeasures to reduce the risks associated with future exploration as NASA plans for missions around the moon, an asteroid and ultimately Mars.

Felix consistently challenges his personal limits while pushing the physical boundaries of human flight.
