International Space Station Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti’s Awesome Space Selfie


Italian European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti shared an incredible selfie from the ISS on Friday, while dressed in a vivid black, red and purple Star Trek: Voyager uniform.Pointing over her shoulder at the SpaceX Dragon cargo craft, which is designed to deliver crew and supplies to the ISS, Cristoforetti tweeted the following:

The coffee she’s referring to is the space station’s new espresso machine, called the ISSpresso, which was scheduled to be delivered there on Friday.

Although Cristoforetti doesn’t sport the classic Captain Janeway coiff, she still manages to look a lot like Starfleet’s famed Delta Quadrant pioneer.

When not making sci-fi geeks jealous, Cristoforetti is busy living aboard the ISS as part of the Futura mission, which aims to perform several scientific experiments inside the ISS’s microgravity laboratory that cannot be conducted on Earth.
