This Tuesday (14), NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hay announced that he will stay aboard the International Space Station (ISS) until March 2022, after receiving permission to extend his mission in the orbiting laboratory.
Vande Hei boarded in April, which means he will spend a total of 353 days living and working on the International Space Station. This period made him break a record: the longest spaceflight by an American astronaut.
