Italian Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti’s Space-Cosplay Game is On Point
"Coffee: the finest organic suspension ever devised."
— Sam Cristoforetti (@AstroSamantha) April 17, 2015
Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has been living it up on the ISS since November as flight engineer of the Futura mission, and celebrated the SpaceX Dragon freighter’s delivery of supplies earlier this week (including specially-engineered, Borg-proof Italian space coffee) by sharing an extremely nerdy pic on Twitter.
The Huffington Post points out that, as a captain in the Italian Air Force, Cristoforetti actually holds the same rank as Kathryn Janeway herself. The Trekkie astronaut is expected to return to Earth in May; in the meantime, check out her Twitter for a steady supply of space porn and an inside look at daily life on the ISS.
