Former NOAA employee Christina Koch greets NOAA from the International Space Station

It's not every day you get a message from space. But on May 21, former NOAA employee Christina Koch greeted attendees at NOAA's 47th Global Monitoring Annual Conference from the International Space Station. Earlier in her career, Koch was a research technician at NOAA’s Global Monitoring Division (GMD) Atmospheric Baseline Observatory in Barrow, Alaska, and later station chief of GMD's American Samoa Observatory. She is now a NASA astronaut on board the International Space Station, where she recorded her greeting.
