Astronaut Scott Kelly returned to Earth this week after spending an incredible 340 days in space aboard the International Space Station. Kelly has a twin brother who also previously served as an astronaut, and scientists are excited to compare the two men now that Scott is back to see what impacts a year in space has on the human body.

NASA Ambassador to Utah Patrick Wiggins came by the FOX 13 News Studio Wednesday to discuss Kelly's feat and the science behind it, adding that the astronaut is actually a little bit taller because of the experience, see the video above for details.
