Expedition 42 Flight Engineer Samantha Cristoforetti

While you enjoy holidays on Earth, take a look at how they’re celebrated on International Space Station.

It’s Christmas aboard the International Space Station (ISS) for Expedition 42 Flight Engineer Samantha Cristoforetti of the European Space Agency (ESA) and her American and Russian colleagues. The crew of the ISS take a break from their maintenance and science duties to enjoy the holiday spirit while sailing around the Earth at over 17,000 miles an hour.
