Astronaut grows 3.5 inches in space *

Japanese astronaut Norishige Kanai tweeted on Monday that according to new body measurements taken earlier in the day, he has grown 9 centimeters, or about 3.5 inches, since he arrived in space three weeks ago. "I’ve only been in space for three weeks and haven’t grown like this since middle/high school," he wrote. He joked that he's worried about fitting into his seat on the Soyuz capsule for the ride back to Earth.
