An American Astronaut, Christina Hammock Koch has returned home this month after spending 328 days in space and broke multiple records for women in space.

She completed the longest single spaceflight by a woman and conducted the first all-female spacewalk with fellow astronaut Jessica Meir.
Christina Koch, in a post on Twitter in December last year reminisced about her experience and time spent in Ghana some 20 years ago and thanks to her, the flag of Ghana was seen from her crew cabin in outer space.
She studied at the University of Ghana-Legon and became connected to the country ever since.
“20 years ago, I was studying abroad at the @UnivofGh. Like spaceflight, it was a positive, life-changing, perspective-deepening experience. Seeing the beauty of Ghana from space reminds me of the amazing people I met there and how in exploring the world, we learn about ourselves,” Koch tweeted earlier.
The post on Twitter received over 1,000 retweets and numerous positive responses.
