While he wasn’t tweeting pictures of supposed UFOs, Scott Kelly was involved in more mainstream experiments for NASA. With anticipation of future manned missions to Mars, NASA needed to discover the long-term effects on the human body of being in space. Being a twin, Kelly was the ideal candidate to monitor while in orbit and compare to his twin brother, Mark, on Earth. space science space station earth science  space science space station earth science  space science space station earth science  space science space station earth science 

Although the tests will not determine any conclusive results—they would need to be repeated hundreds of times to do this—NASA accepts that they may give them significant clues as to what to expect on long term space flights. As twins are as genetically similar, it allows scientists to study genetics against environment, and possibly make more educated guesses when and if they do venture out to the red planet.

The experiments will carry on for a further six months, following Scott Kelly’s return to Earth in March 2016, with further monitoring and samples being taken from both men before any results may be declared.

Millennium Falcon Shaped Craft Spotted On ISS Live Feed

As recent as April 2016, 20-year-old Jadon Beeson from Stourport-on-Severn in Worcestershire, England, was viewing the live International Space Station feed on his mobile phone, when he suddenly stared at the screen in disbelief.What appeared to be moving away from the space station, Beeson claims he spotted what looked like a “metal spaceship,” and resembled the Millennium Falcon—Han Solo’s prized space craft in the Star Wars movies.

He said the object was visible for around two minutes and that it had a “blue glow” about it. Beeson admits he is a UFO fan, but that he has no idea what it was and found it all very strange.Beeson sent a screenshot of the footage straight to NASA in hopes for an explanation as to what he saw. As of May 2016, he is still awaiting a reply. In most cases such as these, the objects tend to be put down to “space debris” of which there is much orbiting the Earth.
