NASA's new record-setting astronaut Christina Koch returned to Earth last week after spending nearly 11 months in space. Koch spent 328 days at the International Space Station, setting the record of the single longest spaceflight by a woman. 

The 41-year-old astronaut returned to her home to find an extremely excited dog, named LBD, and posted the video on Twitter saying she wasn’t sure “who was more excited”. The video has already garnered more than 2.5 million views and the reply from NASA was cherry on the cake.
