Livingston Resident, Astronaut Returns To Earth After Breaking Several Records

WATCH Astronaut welcomed home by excited pooch after a year in space

WATCH Astronaut welcomed home by excited pooch after a year in space

Koch said these particular protein crystals don't always grow very well on Earth. But overall, she described it as a "pretty easy transition back". The record spaceflight saw Koch participate in more than 200 scientific investigations, including a look at how such a long term in space physically affects a woman.

Astronaut Scott Kelly, who holds NASA's record for spending 340 days in space - the longest single space flight ever - reportedly still had sore feet and burning skin three months after ending his mission in 2016. "I'm not sure who was more excited", he wrote.

Research and scientific details about how the near-year of microgravity affected Koch are not yet available, but NASA intends to use her extended stay as a way to observe whether prolonged spaceflight will affect women differently than their male counterparts.

"Milestones provide motivation for people, so I think it's a good thing to recognize", Koch said. It's been said that the first woman who will go to the moon is already in the astronaut program.

Future Hyundai and Kia EVs to use platform developed with Canoo
A new business model that focuses on reducing production and infrastructure costs to make EVs more affordable to customers. The first Canoo vehicles are expected to appear on the road by 2021 and will be offered only as a subscription.

"Of course, anyone in our office would be honored to be part of that mission", she added. Koch posted an adorable video of his meeting with his dog on Twitter on Thursday.

The electrical engineer-turned astronaut said she counted herself lucky to not have suffered more serious ailments.

But it's not until Koch's husband opens the door that the reality of her mom's return seems to truly set in for LBD and she reaches a body-flailing, face-licking, happy-barking level of excitement.
