Antonio gave us an insignt on the operations in the ISS and a good idea of what life is like on the station. He also gave us a detailed tour of the station and explained what the different modules are used for and how the BIGGEST spacecraft was put together in one of the greatest international cooperations! He answered many questions and we were glad to find so many curious visitors in a friendly interactive environment.
