ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli completed his five-month mission, called Vita, to the International Space Station on 14 December 2017.

Vita stands for Vitality, Innovation, Technology and Ability and was chosen by Italy’s ASI space agency, which provided the mission through a barter agreement with NASA.

In Italian, “vita” means “life”, reflecting the experiments that Paolo ran and the philosophical notion of living in outer space – one of the most inhospitable places for humans.
