Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has succeeded in networking by sharing her daily life aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
On Wednesday (4), a European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut and three other NASA astronauts took off aboard Space X’s Falcon 9 rocket, bound for a six-month mission to the International Space Station.
In the video posted on her TikTok account, the European astronaut says she will take her viewers to the “final frontier”, adding to the excitement of the Earth-to-space launch.

CREW-4 مهمة mission
The current mission, called Crew-4, is expected to conduct ongoing research into growing soilless plants in space. Another experiment will be to develop an artificial human retina, taking advantage of the International Space Station’s microgravity environment to help create thin protein films, layer by layer.
This is not the first time the Italian has gone into space. On November 23, 2014, Samantha was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and returned to Earth on June 11, 2015 after 200 days. At that time, she became the woman who spends the most time in space.
