Astronaut Scott Kelly Sets Record for Time Spent in Space

Planets and moons away from Pluto at the International Space Station, we find astronaut Scott Kelly, who has now spent more time in space than any other American.

NASA tells us that October 16th was his 383rd day living in space and of course, that's a new record for cumulative stay.

Kelly is now more than halfway through a nearly year-long mission aboard the International Space Station. He acknowledged the new record tweeting, "Records are meant to be broken."

NASA says he is scheduled to come down to Earth on March 3rd. By then, he would have spent a grand total of 522 days in space.
