UNSA’s Director of Human Spaceflight and Mini Jon chat with ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti

Live from The Space Shed with Samantha Cristoforetti

When we recently interviewed ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti (super cool, right!?) as part of our live broadcasts for The Astro Science Challenge: LIVE! she picked out her favourite question from those submitted by all our Cadets – watch her answer in the video above, we think you’re going to like it.

You can watch the full interview where Samantha also chats with Jon (and of course Mini Jon) about:

  • her favourite memory on the ISS
  • dreaming in space
  • arts, crafts and games on the ISS
  • grumpy astronauts
  • the NEEMO project
  • Jon’s (ambitious) campaign to host the next G8 summit on board the ISS
  • The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and what she’d do with a Point of View Gun
  • and the big question, whether to save earth or colonise Mars…
