Greenhouse - Take Your Classroom to Space: In-flight Call

ESA's Directorate of Human Spaceflight, Erasmus Centre hosted the live in-flight call on 17 February 2011.  ESA connected students in four locations in Europe to the ISS to speak with Paolo Nespoli about the Greenhouse in Space.  The locations were Cite de l'espace in Toulouse France; ESA European Astronaut Centre, Cologne, Germany; ESA ESRIN, Frascati, Italy; Ciencia Viva in Lisbon Portugal.

The %u2018Greenhouse in space' project, proposed and conceived by ESA's Directorate of Human Spaceflight, is not only a scientific experiment but also an educational opportunity for schoolchildren aged between 12 and 14.

Paolo will use a specially-developed greenhouse in space to grow plants and make observations of the life cycle of a flowering plant. The schoolchildren will be able to follow this with their own experiment on the ground, using a similar greenhouse and the same species of plant.

International Space Station bathroom tour
thematic page:  FUTURA MISSION 
Join ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti as she shows how astronauts on the International Space Station keep clean. From soap to water and cutting your nails, everything is different in space. Samantha demonstrates her ways to "shower" depending on how much time she has. The astronauts on the Space Station spend as much time as possible on science. During her 40-hour working week Samantha runs many experiments from Italy's ASI space agency and ESA, and takes part in even more from scientists all over the world.

International Space Station toilet tour
ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti shows how to use the most unglamorous but often asked-about part of living on the International Space Station: the toilet. A fan creates suction to avoid smells and floating waste. Solid waste is stored and put in cargo ferries to burn up when the spacecraft leaves the Space Station. The astronaut urine is recycled %u2013 into drinking water.

Samantha's cool Space Station science
thematic page:  FUTURA MISSION 
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%u2019s 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.
