Congrats to Cosmonaut Gennady Padalka

Cosmonaut Padalka Sets World Record in Combined Flight Duration. But is it really a “world” record? I’d call it a Space record.

“Gennady Padalka started his fifth space flight at the ISS on March 27, with his combined flight duration amounting to 710 days. Today at 01:42 Moscow time [22:42 GMT on Sunday] Padalka beat the world record set by cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev [Krikalyov].”

Is it me, or has Padalka spent so much time in space that he looks like a space alien?

Nope…it’s not just me.
