Kelly recently spoke (via CBS News) about one of the main highlights of his trip through space, the Soyuz re-entry.

"Once you get past the initial shock of the drogue chute opening and all the pyrotechnics firing for various reasons, certainly coming through the atmosphere, the plasma that's right next to your head ... (it) definitely gets your attention," he said. "It's so much fun for me that I said after my last flight, if I'd hated being in space for six months I'd have done it all over again just for that last 20 minutes in the Soyuz. It's that type of an experience."
