After nearly a year in space, Christina Koch is back home in Texas — and the reunion she had with her dog is absolutely adorable.

"Not sure who was more excited," Koch tweeted on Thursday, "Glad she remembers me after a year!"


NASA's newest record-setting astronaut returned to Earth last week from the International Space Station and said she has been readjusting well to gravity after nearly 11 months in space.

Her 328-day mission was the longest ever by a woman.

Koch recently returned home to Galveston, Texas, to find a kitchen full of chips and salsa, something she'd craved in orbit.

And had one of the cutest-ever reunions with her dog.

Koch told reporters this week she also already visited the beach with her husband and dog just three days after landing in Kazakhstan.
