How Scott Kelly Will Have To Readjust To Life On Earth

From the number of daily sunrises to preparing a cup of coffee, living in microgravity about 250 miles above the Earth is remarkably different from terrestrial life.

Scott Kelly, who recently wrapped up a 340-day mission aboard the International Space Station, is among the rare few who understands this well.

I’ve been up here for a really long time and sometimes, when I think about it, I feel like I’ve lived my whole life up here,” Kelly told CNN on Tuesday.

While the year in space wasn’t Kelly’s first (he’s been on a total of four missions), it was his longest — and longer than any other American astronaut. It will take time for him to re-acclimate, both physically and mentally, to life back on Earth.

Below, a look at five ways Kelly must readjust — for better or worse — after his extended stay in space.
