Spaceship Earth inflight call

Over 1500 students on Earth used good scientific practice and compared results to André's identical space experiments.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience brought together four European sites by videoconference: science centre Nemo in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, the Leicester National Space Center, United Kingdom, Parque de las Ciencias in Granada, Spain, and the Technik Museum in Speyer, Germany.

Before getting in contact with space, the centres demonstrated scientific experiments to each other. They created fire explosions and super thick foams to show students the footprints of gravity and physics in our everyday life.

The astronaut encouraged the children to satisfy their bubbling curiosity and answered their questions. Solar storms, blood circulation and the water behaviour in weightlessness were among the topics tackled.

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.

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.

Mission summary recounted by Luca Parmitano
thematic page:  VOLARE MISSION 

Luca Parmitano recounts his six-month Volare mission on the International Space Station taking the viewer through some of the experiments he conducted.

Luca's nutrient intake was carefully controlled and measured to collect data in preparation of future space exploration missions. ESA's space furnace, the Material Science Laboratory is exploring properties of new materials. Luca shares the experience of docking three spacecraft: ESA's ATV Albert Einstein, the Japanese HTV-4 and the commercial spacecraft Cygnus. He shows us the Cupola module and the view it offers of our planet.

Tribute to Albert Einstein PAO
thematic page:  VOLARE MISSION 

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 37 Flight Engineer Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency paid tribute to the European "Albert Einstein" Automated Transfer Vehicle-4 cargo ship during an in-flight event Oct. 24 involving officials and students in Italy, Germany and Israel. The ATV-4 resupply vehicle arrived at the station in mid-June, delivering more than 7 tons of food, fuel and supplies for the space station crew. It will undock on Oct. 28 and will be deorbited for a destructive entry back into the Earth's atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean.

Space Robotics Challenge PAO
thematic page:  VOLARE MISSION 

ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano talks to finalists of the Volare Space Robotics Challenge.

From 400 km above the surface of Earth, ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano talked with high-school students during the finals of the Volare Space Robotics Challenge.

Seven teams entered remote-controlled robots that battled on a mock-up of the International Space Station. Their mission: to unload cargo from ESA's Automated Transfer Vehicle as quickly as possible while avoiding objects.

Students at "ground control" gave instructions wirelessly from the control centre next door. Multipliers added more strategy to the competition.

The two-day event was the culmination of lots of hard work from the seven teams of high-school students. The highlight for many students was visiting ESA's laboratories and of course a live call with ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano straight from the International Space Station.
