Horizons mission in review


During ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst’s second mission to the International Space Station he supported over 60 European experiments and became Europe’s second ever Space Station Commander. This clip shares a few highlights from Alexander’s Horizons mission and gives a glimpse into life on the Station.

Alexander was launched to the International Space Station from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on 6 June 2018. He travelled to the Station with NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor and Russian cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev in a Russian Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft, spent just over six months in orbit and returned to Earth on 20 December 2018.

Watch this journey from launch to landing for a snapshot of memorable moments.

  1. They are all so amazing, I really admire their courage to go hurtling in a tiny space capsule through space and on to the space station, now that's something that words can not describe, it's just so awesome ♥️🌹

  2. Ca. 50 Tonnen im Orbit!!! Mega gigantisch… Bei dem Tempo, eine ordentliche Tunnelbohranlage auf dem Mond, um sich für ewig einzugraben und einzurichten. Hmmm, aahhh zu lang, eindeutig! Aber das wird auch ja auf der Erde auch klappen. Also keine Hektik.
