Samantha Cristoforetti from Italy will shortly fly to the International Space Station. The final stage of her preparations happens in Star City, near Moscow, training alongside three other members of ESA's Astronaut Corps. The third of ESA's new generation of astronauts to fly, she'll be undergoing a long-duration stay in orbit – replacing Alexander Gerst from Germany as part of the station's permanent onboard crew.
