Koch and crew deported countless experiments at the ISS, focusing on technology development, biology, and the search for evidence of dark matter.
“I didn’t inevitably know what this mission was going to turn into when I propelled, ” Koch told ABC News . “But I feel one of the things about the astronaut regiments is that we are taught to be adaptable and to be ready for anything in a mission that comes our way.”
