About the Show

A Year in Space is a two-part series adapted from TIME’s original digital video series about astronaut Scott Kelly, whose 12-month stay on the International Space Station (ISS) tested human limits for space travel and set the groundwork for a manned mission to Mars.

These specials tell the story of what it takes, mentally and physically, to spend a year in space- and what it means for humanity as we journey to Mars and beyond.
