Montana Astronaut Sets Record For Spending Nearly a Year in Space
We all wonder what it is like in space. I bet we all would be curious to feel what it is like to be totally weightless. I imagine what it would feel like looking at Earth from miles away. But, much like Las Vegas, I feel space would be something that is only fun for a couple days. Now, imagine being completely weightless, in an apartment the size of a VW Bug. And living in that confined space for almost an entire year. That is what Christina Koch has been doing since March of 2019.
According to the Great Falls Tribune
Christina Koch, a Michigan native who most recently resided in Livingston according to her NASA bio, launched into space on the Russian Soyuz rocket from Kazakhstan. (March 19 2019)
After 328 days at the International Space Station, Koch returned to our little blue planet. Setting the record for most consecutive days spent in space by a woman.
