During her time on the ISS, Koch participated in a number of experiments, and even took time to answer a few questions from Earth. Koch, who created history with the longest single spaceflight ever by a woman was happy to be back with her family and the pet.

Nasa astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir completed the job with wrenches, screwdrivers and power-grip tools, it marked the first time in a half-century of spacewalking that men weren't part of the action.

Watch the incredible video below. "Glad she remembers me after a year!"

After spending nearly an entire year on the International Space Station, astronaut Christina Koch was finally reunited with her dog this week. Koch wrote on Twitter alongside the video.

Flood Watch in Effect Until Tomorrow at 7PM
We've said the threat is for Wednesday , but realistically it's a late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning threat. This heavy rain combined with backlogged streams, rivers, and full reservoirs, makes Flash Flooding a growing concern.

The record-breaking astronaut posted a video to her Twitter on Thursday showing the joyous reunion during which her rescue dog, LBD (short for Little Brown Dog), couldn't contain herself.

With her tail in rapid movement, the ecstatic pooch barks and jumps with joy while greeting her much-missed owner. She also made sure to hit the beach in Kazakhstan where she landed with her hubby and LBD as well.

Side-effects include a significant loss of bone density and a drop in muscle mass, Business Insider reported a year ago. Koch adopted her from a humane society.

While at the International Space Station, Koch conducted six spacewalks and spent more than 42 hours in space outside of the station. "I can not wait to feel and hear Earth again".
