ESA Euronews: 10 years of Columbus
With whoops and cheers from the crew, the Shuttle Atlantis blasted off ten years ago with Europe’s Columbus module on board, bound for the International Space Station.
Since then ESA’s orbiting science lab has been used to grow plants, research new metals and probe astronauts’ blood, bodies and brains.

After all the years I spent preparing Proposals for the Columbus project and the few great years working with my Alcatel Bell colleagues in Hoboken on the EGSE for it, I am proud that Spacelab Mk II has given 10 years of operation in orbit – looking forward to the next 10 years.
Samantha Cristoforetti, love you.
