After a historic One-Year NASA mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS), Expedition 46 crew is back home. On Tuesday at 11:26 PM EST, the crew landed in a remote town of Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan. The crew conducted almost 400 investigations beneficial for NASA and the humanity. There’s a research project that “examined fluid shifts that occur when bodily fluids move into the upper body during weightlessness.” Studying these shifts, link to “visual changes and a possible increase in intracranial pressure,” is vital for space exploration.
