Astronaut Christina Koch Returns Back to Earth After Setting a Record-Breaking Space Mission of 328 Days

Astronaut Christina Koch, 40-year-old Expedition 61 flight engineer, has safely returned to Earth after making space history as the longest-ever single spaceflight by a woman. She was originally expected to compete a six-month mission, that was eventually extended by NASA, with a goal of collecting data on long-duration space flight effects on a woman (Robert Z. Pearlman, Space, 2020).
