ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti running experiments in weightlessness during her Futura mission for scientists from all over the world. The International Space Station offers three state-of-the-art laboratories where research can be done without gravity. The European Columbus laboratory, the Japanese Kibo and the American Destiny module offer facilities for physics, biology, geophysics and medicine.
Samantha’s 40-hour work week is devoted to science and maintaining the weightless research centre. This video gives a fast-track impression of some of the experiments she worked on. In quick succession we see Samantha working on: exercise machine ARED, measuring her body mass, the robotic droids SPHERES, ESA’s microgravity glovebox, muscle-measurement machine MARES, centrifuge-incubator Kubik, Biolab, Materials Science Laboratory and ejecting miniature satellites called Cubesats into space.

shes likes a cute little action figure for SCIENCE!!
Science flies you into space, religion flies you into skyscrapers.
I didn't know ISS could eject objects into orbit… Cool…
wow, she is fully evolved species. poor us, were not evolved because we can only type and comment :(
What happens if you sneeze aboard the ISS?
Well this don't explain much on what they are actually doing I will be interested in knowing more specifically what they do…
Man.. they never stopped working do they..? Imagine a resort in the space in the future where hard working people like them get to chill out. The saying still applies.., "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy".
I see they've sorted the hair problem ;)
Amazing video, samantha is an amazing woman and the space lab is absolutely gorgeous!!!
I like stay in this type house, how can I build on the blue planet?
She needs a fucking comb and a powerful hair gel
I hope we colonise other planet before climated change destroy human race AND WE ARE RUNING OUT OF TIME

Woah, impressionnant… She's a great and inspiring spationaut. I hope that one day, thanks to the hard work of people like her and all the scientists on Earth, we will be able to see an international team on Mars. I mean… I missed the first human on the moon (as I wasn't born yet) so, please, let me see the first humans on Mars in my lifetime ! :D
velcro pant legs? great idea.
Lots of tech gear in those chambers!
Today's astronauts are smart and healthy
So the women cut their hair now?
So, when do they get to work?, everything seems like fun time.
Can i have a question ? Do the internet works in space ?
Interesante actividad .

The space station is so cluttered…i'm in awe that they know what it all does.
This is amazing! I wish space travel will become possible soon
Wow, the equipment at 1:14 looks so heavy and so weird when handles weightless.
Its amazing to witness how brilliant some people are, these people are our steps towards an incredible future.
