Time to come home, Luca

8 November 2013 ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano has run over 30 experiments on the International Space Station, helped to dock three spaceships, kept his cool during two spacewalks and entertained us with his blogs and pictures of Earth from above – and now it is time for him to come home.

After almost six months on the orbital complex, Luca will return home in a Soyuz spacecraft together with NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg and cosmonaut commander Fyodor Yurchikhin during the night of Sunday–Monday.

Luca looks back on Volare

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