Moon to Pass Before Mars on February 18 Before Sunrise

Astronaut Christina Koch will discuss her record-breaking 328-day spaceflight on Wednesday, during a news conference at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

"After 328 days in space, the first six days back on Earth were full of just as much wonder and excitement", Koch said in a press conference Thursday. It was Koch's fourth spacewalk.

For now, Koch seems to be enjoying her time back on Spaceship Earth. "Glad she remembers me after a year!"

She flew to the space station in March 2019 and took part in the first all-female spacewalk in October previous year.

"Not sure who was more excited", Koch captioned the video.

In the sweet clip, LBD, which stands for Little Brown Dog, can be seen pawing at the closed door and wagging her tail as Koch and her husband approach.

Harris is also facing charges of resisting arrest, obstructing official business and disorderly conduct while intoxicated. Eastern Kentucky University confirmed that Harris is a redshirt sophomore for the school.

"We are celebrating our 20th year of continuous presence aboard the International Space Station in low Earth orbit this season, and we are on the point of sending the first girl and next guy to the moon 2024", said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.

Being in space for long periods of time can affect the human body in many different ways.

Linking students directly to astronauts aboard the space station provides unique, authentic experiences created to enhance student learning, performance and interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

NASA also is working to get American companies flying to the International Space Station as ferries for astronauts, a program that now involves SpaceX and Boeing.

Just before her return to Earth, Koch told reporters: "Oh, how I miss the wind on my face, the feeling of raindrops, sand on my feet and the sound of the surf crashing on the Galveston beach".

"We take daily sensory inputs for granted until they are absent ..."
