How does Luca plan to take on this exciting yet challenging responsibility?

"I see myself as a facilitator. My goal will be to put everybody in the condition to perform to the best of their capability."

Luca is currently training for his upcoming mission at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, at Star City near Moscow, and at the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne. In addition to running simulations on the Soyuz spacecraft he is also familiarising himself with the experiments he will conduct in the orbital outpost.

Luca is excited to return to Europe's Columbus laboratory, launched 10 years ago this year. Columbus houses as many disciplines as possible in a small volume, from astrobiology to microbiology through metallurgy and psychology. Countless papers have been published drawing conclusions from experiments performed in Columbus, and Luca will continue the research during his mission.
