She was away from her dog for quite a while.
Dogs usually go crazy when their owners return in the wake of leaving them for simply thirty minutes, so I’m certain you can envision how cheerful this dog was to see her owner after about a year. Dog owner and, y’know, record-breaking astronaut Christina Koch was in space for an incredible 328 successive days. So most of us agree she was from her four-legged companion for a long time.
The heartwarming moment unfolds…
While Christina may have broken records during her stint in space. The video she’s as of late shared on Twitter of her rejoining with her pet dog is breaking hearts. In the charming video, Christina’s pooch – named LBD – skips off the dividers and quickly sways her tail. As she understands her owner is at finally home. Christina tweeted the video with the caption: ‘Not sure who was more excited. Glad she remembers me after a year!’
“We call her LBD, little brown dog, she’s from the Humane Society and she couldn’t be sweeter, and yes, she was very excited, I was very excited, I’m not sure who was more excited! You know it’s just a symbol of coming back to the people and places that you love, to see your favorite animal.”
Prior to rejoining with her pet, Christina was a part of the first ‘all-woman spacewalk’ alongside fellow astronaut Jessica Meir.
NASA said about the importance of Christina and Jessica’s journey to space, and how it’s a ‘milestone worth noting’. The space station said, “he first all-woman spacewalk is a milestone worth noting and celebrating as the agency looks forward to putting the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024 with NASA’s Artemis lunar exploration program. Our achievements inspire students around the world, proving that hard work can lead you to great heights, and all students should be able to see themselves in those achievements.”
Christina’s account breaking flight covered 5,248 orbits and 139 million miles and was just 12 days short of the U.S. single-flight endurance record set by former astronaut Scott Kelly. She presently positions No. 7 on the list of most experienced NASA astronauts and 50th on the earth.
