Transcript for Astronaut reunites with dog after nearly a year in space
Finally tonight, America strong. She made history and she made her dog very happy. She made history, and this was the moment nasa astronaut Christina Koch returned to Earth. Thumbs up and some laughter after 328 days in space -- more time in space than any other woman in history. You know, within the first two minutes of being back on Earth, I saw more people's faces than I had seen in a year. So that was really exciting. Reporter: But there was one face that said it all. This is astronaut Christina Koch returning home, her dog waiting. Her little girl, barking, her tail wagging, with kisses for the astronaut, who later said, "Not sure who was more excited. Glad she remembers me after a year." Tonight, astronaut Koch also posting this vacation photo with her family at the beach. But she knows it's that moment at the front door her little dog waited 328 days for. We could watch that all day. History made and her dog so happy astronaut Koch is home. Good night.
