Minerva: Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti returns to the ISS

Italian ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti returns to space for a second mission on board the International Space Station. She’s due to fly to the ISS with a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.  The launch is due in the spring of 2022.

Samantha’s mission is called Minerva and is inspired by Roman mythology.  Samantha says the Minerva name and patch pays homage to all those who make human spaceflight possible.

On board, Samantha will carry out vital science operations on behalf of researchers and international partners worldwide. Samantha also holds the role of US Orbital Segment (USOS) lead.  This makes her responsible for operations within the US, European, Japanese and Canadian modules and components of the Space Station.
