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.
