After spending nearly a year aboard the International Space Station during which time they conducted a whole array of different experiments, the people who lived on the space station are home. The crew was busy while they were in space conducting a wide range of different experiments.
They were trying to determine the effects of space flight and long term space dwelling. They did this by the use of biomedical and psychological research on the impacts of long-duration spaceflight on the human body.
