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.

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".

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
