Astronaut Scott Kelly returned to Earth on Wednesday after an unprecedented year in space for NASA. Here's a pictorial look at how he spent his time, starting with a few snaps to let the folks at home know all is well.
Kelly took a selfie that also shows the Cupola, a special module which provides a 360-degree viewing of the Earth and the space station, aboard the International Space Station
Scott also got to take a spacewalk selfie
Kelly was able to snap a quick selfie during a spacewalk last December.
And do augmented reality experiments
The Microsoft HoloLens is part of NASA's project Sidekick, which is exploring the use of augmented reality to reduce crew training requirements and increase the efficiency at which astronauts can work in space.
Which is probably more fun than a flu experiment
Kelly gave himself a flu shot for an ongoing study on the human immune system.
Or a lettuce experiment
This lettuce, sampled with astronaut Kjell Lindgren, was harvested as part of a science experiment.
Eating fruit kept Kelly healthy
Visiting cargo ships often carry a small cache of fresh food for crew members aboard the International Space Station.
And who could resist an ISSpresso?
This espresso device allows crews to make hot beverages such as tea, coffee and broth.
Or a space burger
Kelly was able to relax with a good movie
And pretend he was in a good movie, too
He was also able to watch a bit of football during his downtime
Kelly took a break aboard the International Space Station to root for the Houston Texans during their Jan. 9, 2016, game on home turf.
And watch the Super Bowl
The astronaut saw some really great sunrises
Kelly shared this photo of a sunrise as seen from the International Space Station.
And Calgary from above, at night

Kelly also got to watch storms
... celebrate a few holidays
... and mark special occasions
Kelly shared his experimental year with crew member Mikhail Kornienko of Roscosmos, who celebrated their 300th consecutive day in space on Jan. 21, 2016.
But there's nothing quite like getting home safe and sound
Kelly concluded his space mission, landing near the town of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan on March 2, 2016.
