Together with the host of the show, Tim Willcox, sitting in the studio talking with Paolo there will also be ESA’s Director of Human Spaceflight, Simonetta Di Pippo, and one of Europe’s six new astronauts, Tim Peake.

Paolo will talk about life aboard the Station and the experiments he is performing. Key events during his MagISStra mission include the arrival of Japan’s HTV-2 unmanned ferry later this month and, in February, the docking of Europe’s ATV-2 vessel under his watchful gaze.
