After camping for nearly a year in space, the Expedition 46 one-year crew mates Commander Scott Kelly and Flight Engineer Mikhail Kornienko will join Soyuz Commander Sergey Volkov for a ride back to Earth via Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft. They'll be landing in Kazakhstan at about 11:45 pm EST on Tuesday (as per IST, the landing will take place about 10:00 am on Wednesday).
During a year-long stay on International Space Station, Scott Kelly not only enjoyed multiple trips around the Earth but also sipped in almost 730 litres of drinking water made from recycled sweat and urine.
Apart from this, what fascinated twitterati are the beautifully-captured abstract images by Scott Kelly. Let's take a look at top 10 views of the world that he shared on his Twitter account.
Google celebrated International Women's Day 2016 with a beautiful doodle about the aspirations of women across the world. The interactive Google logo was of a video depicting women across the world speak of their aspirations.
Every year, Google honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday with a doodle. This year too, Google made a spectacular artwork depicting the Nobel Peace Prize winner doing what he did best - give hair-raising speeches, which transformed into a subliminal Google logo.
To honor the inventor of the electronic analog Moog synthesizer, which gave the music universe a new sound, Google made an interactive doodle which made musicians out of all of us. The Google Doodle that day was a interactive Moog Sythesizer itself, with the ability to try out our own tunes and even share them on social media.
No other instrument has disrupted musical compositions more than the electric guitar, especially the one invented by Les Paul. Google could fathom the importance and to honor Les Paul's 96th Birth anniversary, it came out with an insane Doodle, which was a living breathing Les Paul guitar. Move the mouse over the strings to play it like the rockstar that you are.
John Lennon is not a man that can be done complete justice to, with just one Doodle, but Google managed to pay a respectable tribute by designing its first ever animated video doodle, on the musician's 70th birthday in 2010. Upon clicking, the logo came to life with images out of Lennon's own pieces of drawing with 'Imagine' playing in the background.
An iconic game met the iconic logo on the 30th anniversary of Pac Man, a game played by one and all. The doodle too didn't mince words and was an exact replica of the popular arcade game, playable by 'inserting a coin', just like the old days.
Now honoring all the great Google Doodle that has been released by the company would be a sham if the first ever Google Doodle was not shared with you all. Way back in 1998, when Google was still a company that ran out of a garage, founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin went to attend the Burning Man Festival. To notify users that they are out of office and won't be able to provide support, they placed a stick figure behind the "O" of the logo. Genius, isn't it? And that's where it all started.
