Luca Parmitano training for second mission


This summer our astronaut Luca Parmitano will fly to the International Space Station from Baikonur Cosmodrome.

The Italian astronaut is currently training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, USA, where he is learning Space Station operations in depth.

His second mission is called ‘Beyond’ and includes a spacewalk and running a rich scientific programme as well as seeing Luca take over command of the International Space Station – only the third time a European astronaut holds this role.

  1. This is so exiting. Another Comander from ESA. Please guys, greet Luca for me and tell him that I admire him and we will be with him at any moment. I am going to say hello and bye when the ISS passes over Costa Rica (that's my country).
    Take care all of you.

  2. Tem uma missão de responsbilidade pesada nos seus ombros…mas como não é um iniciado nestas andanças …a missão deverá ter sucesso…será que tem aquela sensação de frio na barriga dada a complexidade de ser o primeiro a chegar à frente ou a experiência não passa por esta sensação?? Que seja uma missão bem sucedida para ter sucesso!!
