On the 28th, Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti will become the first European woman to assume the post of Commander of the International Space Station (ISS), another first in her current stay in these facilities, since last July she was the European first to go on a spacewalk.

Cristoforetti will succeed the Russian Oleg Artemyev, his Expedition 67 teammate, with the traditional handover of the key, a ceremony which can be followed live on the website of the European Space Agency (ESA).
