Description

During ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst’s second mission to the International Space Station he supported over 60 European experiments and became Europe’s second ever Space Station Commander. This clip shares a few highlights from Alexander’s Horizons mission and gives a glimpse into life on the Station.

Alexander was launched to the International Space Station from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on 6 June 2018. He travelled to the Station with NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor and Russian cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev in a Russian Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft, spent just over six months in orbit and returned to Earth on 20 December 2018.
