(Photo) Female Astronaut Lands Back On Earth After 328 Days In The Space

NASA’s Christina Koch has returned to Earth on Thursday after using almost a year in the International Space Station.

The Soyuz MS-13 capsule carrying her and others touched down on the Kazakh desert in Russia at 4:12 am ET carrying Koch, 41, European astronaut Luca Parmitano and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov.

Koch’s mission broke the record for the longest continuous stay in space by a woman, previously held by NASA’s Peggy Whitson.
