Blue Dot: three months of science in space
thematic page:  BLUE DOT MISSION 
ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst gives an overview of some of the science he has performed during his Blue Dot mission on the International Space Station so far. From robotic surgery to vaccines and accurate thermometers, research in space is bringing benefits for humans on Earth.

Deep Space Communication Engineering
ESA uses cutting-edge technology, high-precision pointing antennas, multi-frequency radio reception and transmission, cryogenically cooled low-noise amplifiers, high-power uplink amplifiers, highly sensitive receivers for telemetry reception, telecommand generation and radiometric measurements to provide the most accurate possible tracking for mission billions of kilometres away in deep space.

Launch and docking Highlights
A Soyuz spacecraft launched on 28 May 2014 from Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and docked with the International Space Station in the early hours of the morning. Onboard were ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst and his Expedition 40/41 crewmates, who will now live and work in space for the next six months. Flying with Alexander are Russian cosmonaut Maxim Suraev and NASA astronaut Gregory Reid Wiseman, demonstrating the value of international cooperation in space. Alexander's flight is the third visit of a German national to the orbital outpost and the sixth long-duration mission for an ESA astronaut. Alexander's 166-day mission is called Blue Dot after the American astronomer Carl Sagan's description of distant Earth as "a pale blue dot" as seen on a photograph taken by NASA's Voyager probe six billion kilometres from our planet.

Volare Space Robotics Challenge finals at ESA's technical heart ESTEC in the Netherlands
Seven teams were invited to the finals to battle their remote-controlled robots on a mock-up of the International Space Station. Their mission: to unload as much cargo from ESA's Automated Transfer Vehicle as possible in a given time. This a highlight of the day's activities.

Life in the Solar System
thematic page:  ISS SCIENCE 
Charles Cockell, about exobiology research and the potential benefits of biomining on other celestial bodies. ESA has a long history of experiments exposing life to the harsh conditions of space. Can life survive space travel? Can life hitchhike across the galaxy and where did life come from to begin with?

Understanding Muscle Loss
thematic page:  ISS SCIENCE 
Molecular medicine scientist Nathaniel J. Szewczyk talks about research with worms on the International Space Station. Scientists are trying to find out which cellular signals are sensitive to gravity to combat unwanted changes in our cardiovascular system, bones, muscles and nervous system. Researching these changes offers clues on how to reverse ageing for people on Earth.

Plant Growth in Space
thematic page:  ISS SCIENCE 
Javier Medina, about the opportunities offered by the ISS to grow plants (and therefore food, oxigen and water vapour) in absence of gravity in order to study the potential plants needed for future exploration.

Blue Dot Mission Logo
thematic page:  BLUE DOT MISSION 
ESA Astronaut Alexander Gerst explains the logo for his ISS mission, Blue Dot. The mission logo is inspired by an image of Earth taken by NASA's Voyager spacecraft as it travelled six billion kilometres from our planet. American astronomer Carl Sagan described our faintly visible planet on the photograph as "pale blue dot".

Mission summary
thematic page:  VOLARE MISSION 

ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano, Russian commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg returned to Earth on 11 November 2013, landing in the Kazakhstan steppe.

Their return flight, landing at 02:49 GMT (03:49 CET), was in the same Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft that flew them to the International Space Station on 29 May.

Luca spent five months on the International Space Station for his Volare mission under a bilateral agreement with the Italian space agency and NASA. He conducted more than 30 scientific experiments, performed two spacewalks and operational tasks as well as maintaining the orbital outpost.

Luca's science roster included installing and running experiments on emulsions that will help industry to create foods and pharmaceuticals with longer shelfa€‘lives.
