This Is What A Bedroom Looks Like In Space

Spoiler: It's tiny.

Astronaut Scott Kelly is the first American to spend a whole year in space. This is where he sleeps:

My #bedroom aboard #ISS. All the comforts of #home. Well, most of them. #YearInSpace

Amazingly, Kelly has a twin brother who will be participating in science experiments on Earth. NASA is studying the two brothers to understand how our bodies change during long-duration space flights, according to Space.com.

Kelly tweeted the photo aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The ISS is currently 220 miles above Earth and it's moving 17,500 mph.
