According to NASA, “Kelly and cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko have been selected to serve a one-year mission aboard the International Space Station in 2015.

“The goal of the mission is to understand how the human body reacts and adapts to the harsh environment of space. Data from the expedition will be used to reduce risks to the health of crewmembers as NASA prepares to advance space travel beyond low Earth orbit.”

Mr Kelly isn’t the first astronaut to showcase Bermuda from space, with Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield tweeting two photos of Bermuda in 2013.

    Really shows how urbanised Bermuda has become. We are almost smothered in concrete.

    “Paved paradise & put up a parking lot.” comes to mind.

    We havwe not found a way to destroy the reefs surrounding us yet.
