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.

Where do astronauts sleep?
thematic page:  FUTURA MISSION 
Join ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti for a guided tour of the International Space Station%u2019s crew quarters "the bedroom". After a day's work running experiments and maintaining the weightless research centre astronauts can retreat to their private quarters that is no larger than a changing room. In this small space they can store personal items, use a laptop for internet and float to sleep in their sleeping bag.

Destination Moon
Why is the Moon important for science? What resources are available on the Moon? Is there water? And more importantly: why should we go back? This movie shows an ESA overview on the past, the present, and the future of Moon Exploration.
