Astronaut Ready for Silence After Year in Space

From a New York Times story by Amanda Holpuch headlined “Astronaut Ready for Silence After Record-Setting Full Year in Space”:

After a year spent listening to the constant hum of the complicated machinery that keeps the International Space Station livable, the astronaut Frank Rubio is looking forward to some silence on Earth.

Mr. Rubio is scheduled to return to land next week after a 371-day mission, the longest single spaceflight for an American astronaut.
