#NASA #Astronaut Christina Koch has returned to Earth after spending a record 328 days in space, breaking the record for the longest time a woman has spent in #space.

Koch and two of her colleagues returned to Earth at 4:12 a.m. EST on Thursday after the spacecraft carrying them home landed on a remote, frozen patch of desert in Kazakhstan, 7,000 miles away from Houston where NASA is headquartered and where most of the NASA astronauts like Koch live.

Koch spent a total of 328 days in space, followed 5,248 orbits around Earth, performed six spacewalks, and spent 42 hours and 15 minutes working outside the International Space Station.

Koch’s lengthy stay in space broke a record set in 2017 by NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, who spent 288 days on a single mission in space. She broke Whitson’s record on December 29. Koch’s mission is also the second-longest spaceflight ever taken by an American astronaut.

Scott Kelly holds the record for the longest spaceflight taken by an American astronaut.

Koch’s achievement comes as NASA is celebrating 20 continuous years of being present on the International Space Station, which 240 miles above Earth.

Koch, a North Carolina scientist who joined the astronaut corps in 2013, participated in a number of scientific experiments while onboard the space station. Some of those experiments had to do with mustard greens, bio-printing, combustion, and kidney diseases. #binspirednews

  1. Wish I could see what she witnessed up there… She would have a lot of answers to extraterrestrial life

  2. Was there any impact to her vestibular system returning to earth? If so how long to rehab her balance?

  3. I’ve heard astronauts, experts etc, claim there are colonies on other planets where people are currently living. Some say since the 60s they’ve lived there. Babies are being born there. The US has been working with other countries on this for generations. Mainstream will never discuss this but many people who are connected to those who have lived there or are there, claim, it’s been done already. Why do you think president Trump has just added a new military force called space force. Think about it! They know what is happening in space etc! It’s time the truth is revealed mainstream! I firmly believe our generation will witness many answers to many questions about the secret things that governments have kept hidden from the public. It’s part of the great awakening!
