Watch stunning 'out of the world' images captured from space by Scott Kelly

US Astronaut Scott Kelly aboard International Space Station (ISS) has been tweeting some breathtaking and astonishing images captured from space. The longest living astronaut has mesmerized people on Earth especially in this November with series of panoramic pics captured from his Nikon D4 digital camera using a 28-millimeter lens.

Scott Kelly is longest living astronaut on the ISS in the history of space and he has spent 420 days in space by November 22. On October 16, Kelly completed 383 days in space and became the longest living man in space by breaking the record of US astronaut Mike Fincke who had spent 382 cumulative days. Kelly is also the record holder of consecutive days spent in space. With his 216th consecutive days in space on October 29, Scott Kelly surpassed astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria’s record for the single longest space flight (215 consecutive days) by an American.

Kelly’s space run will continue till March 3, 2016 and if everything goes according to plan then by that time he would have spent a total of 522 days in space spanned over four missions. Kelly has been subject to an experiment which is analyzing the effects of space over humans and the data obtained will be used in the future space missions.
