Scott Kelly Grew Two Inches in Space Stint

After his landing back on earth Thursday, NASA officials revealed that astronaut Scott Kelly grew two inches during his time aboard the International Space Station. “Astronauts get taller in space as the spine elongates,” NASA spokesman Jeff Williams said, “but they return to preflight height after a short time back on earth.” Kelly spent 340 days in space—the longest stint ever for an American astronaut.
