NASA astronaut Christina Koch sets a woman's longest space flight record

Dream achieved NC State grad breaks record for longest space flight by a woman

Christina Koch is on a space mission longer than that of any other female astronaut before her.

As he wrote, "FACTS", in October, cook has set another record, having joined the first ever all-female team of astronauts that came to the open space. This is the second record Koch has broken this year. That officially surpassed the women's record set by Peggy Whitson in 2017.

Christina Koch of NASA is no longer on Earth since March 14, 2019. It was Koch's fourth spacewalk.

According to the NASA schedule, Koch will remain at the station until February 2020, remaining at the height of the longest space flight performed by a NASA astronaut: 340 days, established by Scott Kelly.

The post got several reactions from people including Rahul's close friend and cricketer Hardik Pandya who called the duo "cuties". KL Rahul, who's seen holding a phone within the image, captioned it as, "Hi there, devi prasad ....?".

On December 28, she will have been in space for 288 days, breaking the record for the longest single spaceflight by a woman. When her mission extension was announced, back in April, Koch said she sought advice from Whitson - and was told to "find what you love, and make sure you have it up there".

Christina Koch is participating in research aimed at understanding how the human body works during extended time in microgravity and how to mitigate bad effects proceeding from it, in preparation for future missions to the Moon and Mars. She gave me a lot of guidance during her stay in ISS. She said, Peggy has been my idol. "It also motivates me, because on those rough days I remind myself that, 'You know, this hasn't been done before, it makes sense that it is hard.' It makes sense that I have to dig deep sometimes". While that is the world record for women, the graphic is for American astronauts only.

The holder of the world record for the longest stay in the space is Valeri Polyakov, who spent more than 14 months aboard the Mir space station.
