"Himalayan lakes, spacewalks and the presidential primaries helped Scott Kelly keep his wits over 340 days in space, the astronaut told reporters on Friday, days after he landed back on Earth from a record-setting mission. 

'It seemed like I lived there forever,' Kelly said. The veteran of past missions said that his biggest surprise was simply how long this one felt. 'Maybe occasionally you do go bananas,' he said.

...'But I don’t think I would ever say I’m absolutely, 100% done,' he added, noting the sudden successes of private spaceflight companies such as SpaceX." - Alan Yuhas via The Guardian
