Hangout with ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti


ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti joined us from Star City, near Moscow. She is currently acting as backup to ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst’s crew for his launch to the International Space Station on 28 May. Samantha, Alexander and the other members of the backup and prime crews will depart for Baikonur Cosmodrome on 15 May. Samantha will herself fly to the ISS in November for her Futura mission.
