Luca Parmitano recounts his six-month Volare mission on the International Space Station taking the viewer through some of the science he conducted. Luca's nutrient intake was carefully controlled and measured to collect data in preparation of future space exploration missions. ESA's space furnace, the Material Science Laboratory is exploring properties of new materials. Luca shares the experience of receiving three spacecraft: ESA's ATV Albert Einstein, the Japanese HTV-4 and the commercial spacecraft Cygnus. He shows us the Cupola module and the view it offers of our planet.
