After 197 days of space expedition, NASA astronaut Andrew J. Feustel stumbles while walking on earth. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) astronauts A J (Drew) Feustel and Rickey Arnold, and cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev of the Russian Space Agency Roscosmos landed southeast of the remote town of Zhezkazgan in Kazakhstan on October 14 this year.
In a video released by Drew on his Twitter shows him struggling while walking on earth during the field test experiment. He shared the video on December 21 titled, “Welcome home Soyuz MS09! On October 5 this is what I looked like walking heel-toe eyes closed after 197 days on ISS during the field test experiment. I hope the newly returned crew feels a lot better.”

The whole crew of Expedition 56 came back safe and sound to earth from the International Space Station (ISS). They kicked their heels providing hands-on support for scientific research in low-earth orbit, working to keep the orbiting laboratory fully operational, and performing three spacewalks.
Working as a geophysicist, Feustel was selected as an astronaut candidate by NASA in July 2000. The Lake Orion, Michigan native has a Ph.D. in the Geological Sciences, specializing in Seismology, and is a veteran of two spaceflights.
Reports say long-term spaceflight, approximately of 165 days, causes an increase in cerebrospinal fluid. The fluid helps in normal functioning of brain, so any disturbance to it causes changes in cognitive functions, like reasoning, attention, mood, physical health, etc.
The video seems to have funked cybernauts who will have a second look about their space fantasy.
