Space chat between Samantha and David


ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti and ESA Director of Human and Robotic Exploration, David Parker, had a quick video call to answer some questions concerning the upcoming International Space Station mission of Samantha.

As a member of Crew-4, Samantha will be launched with @NASA astronauts Kjell Lindgren and Bob Hines to the Station from Florida, USA, on a @SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft in 2022. This will be Samantha’s second space mission and the experience she brings will stand her in good stead as Europe’s first female in command of a Station expedition.
