Hangout with Samantha Cristoforetti (by pio dal cin) I am so excited and proud to announce to have had clearance for an exclusive interview with +Samantha Cristoforetti . I will interview her exclusively on my humble show on +Google+ called +You Are The Star (for FIVE minutes)
The show was meant to bring “Gplussers”to the open in front of a camera and have a nice peaceful conversation about themselves and their experience both in life and on +Google+ as it was first launched almost two years ago.
First Italian woman astronaut, Samantha Cristoforetti does not like celebrity. She easily escaped the spotlight from the media to resume her training.
A marathon that will end on 2014 when she will be launched into space to join the ISS (International Space Station) where she will spend a record six months studying Mother Earth and performing various experiments
The main training takes place in Houston Texas at the +NASA . Samantha has a great curriculum:
35 years old, Aeronautic’s captain and over five hundred hours on military airplanes.
She was picked among thousands of candidates in 2009 by the European Space Agency ESA along with five other astronauts among whom captain Luca Palermitano.
She is training very hard. As the leading engineer on board, she has to know the ISS inside out.
Her dream as a child was to become an astronaut, now that she has finally fullfilled her dream she is ready for the greatest challange of her life.
So, if you are ready to listen to her and what she has to tell about herself and her mission tune in on February 15th at 5 pm (Rome Time) on +YouTube . You’ll be able to see her LIVE and post your questions to her.
