ESA astronaut André Kuipers will be making his second flight to the International Space Station later this year, where he'll embark upon a six-month stay in orbit.
The Dutch astronaut spent many months training internationally for the mission learning the intricacies of a much larger station to which ESA's Columbus module has been added since his last visit in 2004.
This video shows training in Europe, Russia and Japan for what will be ESA's 4th long duration mission.
It also includes interviews of André Kuipers in English and Dutch.
