Rome, February 22 - Luca Parmitano will become the
first Italian astronaut to walk in space when he goes up to the
International Space Station in May, the Italian Space Agency
(ASI) said Friday.
"Parmitano will make at least two space-walks," ASI said.
Parmitano, a captain in the Italian air force, has been
training in Russia and is to copilot a Soyuz TMA spacecraft and
spend six months working on the Space Station beginning in May.
His mission will involve numerous scientific experiments
and will also feature good Italian food.
Italian chefs have prepared and carefully dehydrated
everything from lasagna to tiramisu', eggplant parmigiana, pesto
risotto and mushroom risotto which Parmitano will share with
others on board the ISS.
Sealed in aluminium bags, the Italian food will reach the
space station before Parmitano.
