Imagine being on the International Space Station for months on end, counting down to the day you'll see your friends and family again, and while you're away from earth, a PANDEMIC occurs.

According to the BBC, three astronauts have returned to Earth this morning from the International Space station, and they'll immediately be sent to isolation because apparently, when you're in space, your immune system becomes a bit compromised, add a pandemic in the mix, and yeah, you're pretty much a shoe in for MORE isolation.

Imagine how amazing it must be to watch Earth for months on end, to be able to see it all, and yet feel so lonely all at the same time. One of the astronauts told reporters: 

Either way, welcome home astronauts! I hope they get a chance to see their families soon enough!
