Cosmic Kiss mission overview – watch him in action in space

German ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer has almost completed his first stay aboard the International Space Station ISS.

Named Cosmic Kiss, the mission began with the third crewed launch of the SpaceX Crew Dragon on 11 November 2021.  This when Matthias flew to the ISS alongside @NASA astronauts Kayla Barron, Raja Chari and Tom Marshburn, collectively known as Crew-3.

It was a fantastic journey

Matthias has now spent around six months in orbit.  He worked on over 35 European and many more international science experiments.  The German astronaut took part in operational procedures. He has also become the 12th ESA astronaut to conduct a spacewalk, or Extra-Vehicular Activity [EVA].

Shortly before the end of his mission, Matthias also welcomed fellow ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti aboard the Space Station.  Samantha launched on 28 April as part of Crew-4 and will continue the common journey for Europe in space.
