I have had the pleasure of watching Scott Kelly undock from ISS live tonight! Wow, what an amazing accomplishment for him. Not the longest stay for a human in space, but still pretty impressive.

He will return to earth in about 3 hours and land in Khazakastan. I am sure there will be a debrief and acclamation period for him after living in zero gravity for so long.

They have monitored both him and his twin brother, Mark, (who remains on Earth) to see the affects of such a long period on the human body. When asked how it was, he replied he could go another year.

Caught a snapshot of the burners kicking in about 2 minutes after they undocked from ISS.

Here is to hoping this is a step towards manned missions to Mars.

I have wasted a lot of time watching this! Sorry you missed it! I assume the live feed will show his landing though. So keep checking.

Pics just for you.

Thanks for the Pic's

If I can stay awake I will. Where are you that you are delayed? Click on the link above in the OP. That should be the real deal livestream at the bottom of the article. Or try this one,

Very interesting! Thanks for the heads up.

There are showing it now. So by your time stamp on your post it would be approximatly 49 min delay.

I am watching NASA Channel on my T.V. in the US.

Weird.

Maybe something to do with my provider?

I don't get it.

Alright, welcome home Scott. He was raised in West Orange where I live.

I hope they hold a parade in his honor. He went on a helluva ride.

We do have a huge St. Patrick's Day parade here, good chance he could be Grand Marshall.

Hi Augustus.

I love watching and reading about space exploration. It's my kid's future.

Glad to see another enthusiast.

Prior to my father working for the DoD he worked for several Boeing/Grumann subs that made components for the various space programs.

My best wishes go to Scott, staying in space for that long has very major effects on the body, even with the best mitigation techniques.

Let's hope that recovery from weightlessness is quick and comfortable.

I've been following him on Twitter and he posted some stunning photos over the last year. One of the most bizarre types has been the bright red upper atmosphere circling the earth on some nights. This is unusual from what I could gather, not from him but from my own checking into it.

How on earth did you manage to get away from that legacy and wind up in the restaurant business? LOL!!!!

I would love to see that view with my own eyes. Alas, I'm now too old to be an astronaut when I grow up.
