In December 1988, two Russian cosmonauts returned to Earth after orbiting the planet on the space station Mir for 365 days and 23 hours, the first time any crew had spent a year in space. Since then, only two cosmonauts have completed a revolution around the Sun while circling the Earth. As announced by NASA on Friday, two more space travelers, a U.S. astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut, will join the year-in-space 'club' in 2015, onboard the International Space Station (ISS).
