NASA Astronaut Christina Koch Space mission Details

She joined the astronaut corps in 2013. She set the record for the longest stay in space by a woman. Her mission will give scientists insight into how weightlessness and space radiation affects the female body on long spaceflights.
The Soyuz MS-13 capsule touched down on the snowy Kazakh Steppe at 4:12 am ET (0912 GMT) carrying Koch, 41, European astronaut Luca Parmitano of Italy and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov.

Koch with fellow NASA astronaut Jessica Meir achieved a gender milestone last October. In fact, tt marked the first time two women stepped out of the space station simultaneously. In January, they also completed two more all-female spacewalks.

NASA’s First all-female spacewalk

In March 2019, NASA’s first all-female spacewalk was called off. Due to the lack of a spacesuit of the right size.
This 328 days record by Koch surpassed the 289 days record by Peggy Whitson. Scott Kelly at 340 days holds the overall American record. Valeri Polyakov holds the global record of 47 days.
The impact of long spaceflights could prove beneficial to NASA’s aim of building a permanent space station on the moon within the next decade.
