Europeans Training for ISS Spaceflights
European Space Agency's Human Space Flight program is gaining more and more experience with several long duration missions aboard the International Space Station. In 2013 and 2014 the recently recruited new generation of European astronauts will enjoy the experience of orbiting the Earth. Luca Parmitano will fly from Baikonur next May 2013 for six months, followed in 2014 by Alexander Gerst and then Samantha Cristoforetti. More from the ESA.
