Local NASA astronaut holding press conference after historic spaceflight
We'll be hearing from a hometown hero today for the first time since her nearly year-long space mission.
Jacksonville native and NASA astronaut Christina Koch will hold a news conference this afternoon from Johnson Space Center in Houston.
Last week she came home after a 328-day mission aboard the International Space Station – which is the longest spaceflight ever for a woman.
During Koch's mission, she orbited the Earth 5,248 times – a journey of 139 million miles.
