Le "papy astronaute" Jeff Williams bat le record américain du temps passé dans l'espace

This NASA photo released August 24, 2016 shows Station Commander Jeff Williams as he monitors bowling ball-sized internal satellites known as SPHERES (Synchronized Position Hold, Engage, Reorient, Experimental Satellites) during a maintenance run in the International Space Station's Japanese Kibo Laboratory Module on June 30, 2016. American astronaut Jeff Williams broke his retired NASA colleague Scott Kelly's record for the most cumulative days in space on August 24, 2016, the US space agency said. Williams, an accomplished spacewalker and 56-year-old grandfather, surpassed Kelly's record of 520 days on August 24.By the time Williams returns to Earth on September 6,2016 he will have talled 534 days in space over his career, more than any American astronaut. Russia's Genny Padalka still holds the record for the most days in space, with 879. 

L'astronaute de 58 ans a dépassé mercredi le record de de son collègue de la Nasa Scott Kelly, qui avait passé 520 jours en orbite. Mais il reste loin du record absolu du Russe Padalka.
