Watch Astronaut Christina Koch Reunite With Her Dog After a Year Apart

Astronaut’s dog goes bonkers when she returns home from year in space, video shows | Raleigh News & Observer

When astronaut Christina Koch returned home this week from a almost 11-month space mission, she said she wasn't "sure who was more excited" about it: her or her dog.

The LBD (little brown dog), as Koch refers to her, was over-joyed before she even walked in the house.

Koch posted the adorable video of their reunion on her Facebook page with the caption "Not sure who was more excited. Glad she remembers me after a year!" wrote the 41-year-old NASA astronaut while sharing the video.

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Koch said that aside from a few neck pains and balancing problems, she was readjusting well to gravity and enjoying being back on Earth, CNN reported. She landed in Kazakhstan on February 6 with two colleagues aboard a Russian capsule.

This has gone hand in hand with their failure to take any action to hold Trump to account for his violations of the Constitution. During his speech I noticed the lady behind him was making odd faces, talking to herself, rustling papers, couldn't sit still.

Koch, who left Earth in March a year ago, took part in the first all-female spacewalk in October with colleague Jessica Meir. She was also looking forward to digging into some chips and salsa, and going swimming and surfing in the Gulf of Mexico.

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

Christina Koch, an American astronaut from Houston, Texas, came back last week from a record-breaking space mission.

As NASA gears up for the next generation of lunar missions and eventual Mars missions, studying how microgravity affects the body will be crucial as longer spaceflights could become the norm. "She's from the Humane Society and she couldn't be sweeter", Koch told CBS News. "I can not wait to feel and hear Earth again".
