“The most stunning auroras I have ever experienced”. The most stunning auroras ever. So Samantha Cristoforetti introduced the photos published in the last hours by the International Space Station. The Italian astronaut is in orbit with the Minerva mission and in recent weeks he has published several photos of our planet seen from Space, including those in which he invites his followers to recognize the rivers and lakes of Italy. Cristoforetti left for her mission last April 27 for a journey that should last five months. Meanwhile, he has already had the opportunity to connect with the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella and also to make a historic spacewalk for maintenance activities.
