#YearInSpace Reddit AMA

NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko will return from a year-long mission to the International Space Station on Tuesday, March 1. Research conducted during this mission will help prepare us for future voyages beyond low-Earth orbit.


On Friday, March 4 at 11 p.m. EST, we will host a Reddit AMA with scientists and medical doctors from our Johnson Space Center. During the AMA, they will answer your questions about everything from how microgravity affects the human body to how astronauts’ food intake is closely monitored while on-orbit. Ask us anything about the science behind the One Year Mission!

Participants include:

  • Julie Robinson, Ph.D., NASA’s Chief Scientist for the International Space Station
  • John Charles, Ph.D., Associate Manager for International Science for NASA’s Human Research Program
  • Scott M. Smith, Ph.D., Nutritional Biochemistry Laboratory Manager for NASA’s Human Research Program
  • Dr. Shannan Moynihan, NASA Flight Surgeon
  • Mark Guilliams, Strength and Conditioning Coach
