Japanese astronaut apologises for saying he had grown 9cm in space
Norishige Kanai retracts claim as a mistake and says he had in fact grown 2cm since arriving at the International Space Station
he apologised, saying he had measured himself after his captain raised questions about the apparent growth and he had stretched only 2cm.
