Christina Koch, who is part of NASA astronaut group, celebrates her 300th day in space

Press Release

NASA cosmonaut, Christina Koch, recorded an all-time smash of gender barrier where she surpassed her 30th successive day in the space. This record the longest period ever attained by female genders that traveled to space. As per the sources of information, she still got some additional weeks for an orbital operation. 

The success is a representation of some of the few previous distinguished operations for the 40-year old space explorer, who is still in her first space trip. In October, Koch and fellow American Jessica Meir accomplished the first all-woman space journey. The pair may wind up at least three expeditions all together before the operation ends. They finished the second space trip together on 15 January and a new schedule for 20 January.  

Koch, who lifted off to the International Space Station (ISS) on March 14 of last year, anticipates spending a sum of 328 days in the space before coming back to Earth on 6 February. During her lengthy stay at the revolving laboratory, she served as a flight expert on Excursions 59, 60, and 61, and she completed five space trips. 

On 9 January, Koch wrote in a tweet that for the 300 days she was in the space, she is very privileged to be part of something, which makes every effort to exemplify and subsidy all human beings. She posted the view of earth from the International Space Station. 

Two women actors from the ‘Star Wars’ and ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ paid a visit to Johnson Space Center of NASA recently. They discussed the achievement attained by Koch in a video posted late December to the International Space Center Tweet feed. Ackie and Tran said not only the works of science-inspired them that Koch is currently taking part but also her contributions to women and the entire globe.  

NASA and other space organizations want to make some modifications to the number of operations to the International Space Station that took place in the last five to six months. The organization plans to bring human beings on the moon in the coming four years in preparation for a journey to Mars in the middle of the coming decade. The fastest journey to arrive on the Red Planet takes approximately nine months, and NASA anticipates adding longer space journeys to the International Space Station manifest and learn how the body of human beings changes in microgravity.
