US astronaut sets record for longest spaceflight by a woman

NASA astronaut Christina Koch has set a new record for the longest spaceflight by a woman. Koch has broken the old mark of 288 days set by former NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson in 2016-17. The Expedition 61 flight engineer is expected to arrive back on Earth in February, having spent more than 300 days in space.
