ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano from Italy is the first of Europe's new generation of astronauts scheduled to fly into space. He'll soon be making a long-duration stay onboard the International Space Station, launching from Baikonur end of may in a Russian Soyuz capsule with two fellow crew members.
His preparation for this mission has involved training with the Station's international partners, including a stint at Star City near Moscow – where, at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre, he's gained experience on full-scale mockups of the Soyuz capsule and the Russan segment of the International Space Station.
This A & B-roll shows Mission training at Star City with interviews of Luca Parmitano in English, Italian and French.
