Congratulations, Jeff Williams! - Record for longest time in space for US astronaut

As of yesterday, U.S. astronaut Jeff Williams has spent a total of 520 days in space, the longest of any U.S. astronaut.  He has now surpassed Scott Kelly who held the previous record.  Williams' first journey was back in 2000 on the Space Shuttle Atlantis when he spent 10 days in space.

However, Peggy Whitson is scheduled to break his record next year.
