(WXYZ) — A Michigan astronaut who set the record for the longest single spaceflight for a woman posted an incredible video seeing her dog this week.

Grand Rapids' Christina Koch landed in the country of Kazakhstan on Feb. 6, aboard a Russian spacecraft.

Koch spent 11 months in space, the longest single spaceflight for a woman.

She was also part of the first all-female spacewalk in October.

Koch says she hopes her record will be broken again soon, because it means women keep pushing boundaries.
