(by pio dal cin) February 15th 2013 10:23 pm. What a great experience today. I had the great privilege and honour to talk to Astronaut +Samantha Cristoforetti  from the +European Space Agency, ESA  in  Germany. We had a friendly talk about her upcoming experience on November 2014 when she will be a member of the crew going into the ISS (International Space Station) where she will spend six months orbiting around the Earth. I learned many things that I did not know about the ISS and life up there. One astonishing fact for me was the speed of travelling around the Earth as it takes about one and a half hour to complete an orbit. Curious to find out? Just watch this video and find out all the details of a great mission.

+Samantha Cristoforetti  will be the first Italian woman to have the honour of being sent into space to the ISS.

Thanks again for your time.  I had a great time
