Bok Hrvatska πŸ‡­πŸ‡· Hello Croatia! A look from space at the capital Zagreb, as well as Vukovar, Dubrovnik and the beautiful coastline. Uno sguardo dallo spazio zu Zagabria, Vukovar, Dubrovnik e le belle coste croate’, Samantha Cristoforetti, an Italian European Space Agency astronaut, former Italian Air Force pilot and engineer, wrote on her Twitter today. She published beautiful pictures from ‘above’ – from space. Enjoy them here:

Cristoforetti holds the record for the longest uninterrupted spaceflight by a European astronaut (199 days, 16 hours) and until June 2017 held the record for the longest single space flight. She is also the first Italian woman in space – she took a command of ISS Expedition 68 on September 28 2022.

In December 2021, Politico Europe named her as one of the ‘dreamers’ in its annual list of the 28 most influential people in Europe.
