Army astronaut returns from historic nine-month space voyage | SWOK News

On April 17th retired Army Col. Andrew Morgan returned to earth after spending nine months in space. While on the International Space Station Morgan kept tabs on the coronavirus and shared his support for medical personnel during this time. He landed in Baikonur, Kazakhstan before traveling to Houston. “I don’t know that I expected things would change quite as much; I didn’t think I was going to come back to a country that has more or less closed down,” he commented. Currently Morgan has said he expects to only spend a few more days in quarantine before returning to his family. After being in space for so long, his immune system had been weakened, making him more suspectable to the coronavirus.
