NASA compared twin astronauts; Observes shifts in gene expression

For 340 days, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly lived and worked inside the International Space Station while his identical twin brother Mark was going about life down on Earth. During the period, NASA conducted an elaborate study on the twins, aimed at teaching us how spaceflight might affect human bodies. Scientists found dramatic shifts in gene expression, particularly during the final six months.
