Astronaut-Dog Reunion Video Instantly Wins the Internet

Astronaut Christina Koch returned to Earth earlier this month after spending almost a year on the International Space Station.

She was part of the first all-female space walk and now holds the record for the longest continuous stay in space by a female, 328 days.

Basically, she’s a badass, but the best part of her return just might be her dog’s reaction:

Pure joy.  I love how the dog keeps turning back to Koch’s husband like, “Look who’s back!  Do you see her?  Is this real?”  He is just so excited his human has returned.

What did we do to deserve dogs?
