Space, AstroSamantha crash patch

A few hours after returning –

In space, astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, the first European woman in command of the International Station, “has only taken a small blow and everything is fine”, the reassurance that came from ESA, after the images were disseminated on social media.

“I hope to see my family and friends again soon and to be able to take a nice shower”, said astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, of the European Space Agency (ESA), in the press conference organized by NASA and at which she participated with her colleagues from the crew Crew 4. The approximately six months of her mission were exciting, but she missed the Earth: “On my return I would like to enjoy nature and natural environments”.

The departure of the Crew 4 crew, which includes Samantha Cristoforetti, with Kjell Lindgren, Bob Hines and Jessica Watkins is near: scheduled for 2 pm Italian on 12 October. From the moment of detachment from the ISS of the Crew Dragon Freedom shuttle to that of ditching, Lindgren said, 17 hours are scheduled.

Samantha Cristoforetti, the day before the space “accident”, had paid homage to Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey”, emulating in a video on social media the famous scene in which the PanAm stewardess walks in zero gravity thanks to some velcro shoes. “I have to know … is it really possible to walk in space with velcro shoes?”, Asks the commander of the International Space Station (ISS) in a post, dressed in white with a headdress like the flight attendant in the film.

A few hours later the practical demonstration arrived, published in a one and a half minute video in which the scene of the film is re-proposed using the same soundtrack. “2022 A Space Odyssey. It turns out that, yes, you can walk with Velcro shoes. Slowly, very very slowly”, comments AstroSam jokingly.
