We discuss Italy's first female astronaut, Samantha Cristoforetti. She's speaks like every European language fluently and has been training to be an astronaut since about turning 18.
She's a real qt π
She also has a considerable media following, a bit like that Canadian mustache guy a few years ago.

Why does our space program have to be so shit?
How do we go about changing this?
She looks like my ex when she was 18.
I didn't go on /g/ for this
I'm not even sure why they keep calling it "International." Sure, Canada or whoever built that arm thing, but that's about it. It's basically America letting other countries feel good about themselves and letting their astronauts crash there for a bit.
> not knowing everywhere is America
I guess you've forgotten the fact that since your space program went down the toilet five years ago, NASA found themselves relying hugely on the Russians (Progress), Europe (ATV) and Japan (H-II) to get shit into space.
They suddenly had to scramble to get their act together the Cygnus and the SpaceX Dragon just to be able to do shit domestically.
So because it's filmed on a NASA camera, it obviates her ESA shirt and automagically makes everyone involved NASA? Does that mean Fox News were behind 9/11?
Wait don't answer that.
She's a pretty worn out looking 37. But then everything I've read and heard says that the astronaut life isn't exactly easy, and that you have to be a specific type of person to be able to thrive.
I actually attended a talk by Chris Hadfield (the Canadian astronaut), and it was amazing to see how fucked up these people are - workaholic doesn't even begin to cover it. The drive and commitment alone is incredible.
Learning C#, coming from python. If I accept the fact that my file will be a clusterfuck, I can pretty much write whatever I want at this point by just putting everything in one file/megaclass. When I try to make everything neat by splitting it up into other classes/files, I end up hitting a wall.
Is this a dead giveaway for a particular hole in my knowledge? Obviously I need to learn more, but what is it? I can split things easily in python, so it's not as if I'm clueless about inheritance, for example.
and to think they are probably only there to purge the toilets
She is way too white looking to be Italian
asian hair is thin. it doesn't stick up and poof. her skin is also fairly obviously white. she's not alabaster white like the hex value FFFFFF, but she's got a normal caucasian complexion.
maybe you've been confused since your girlfriend is half white that you think that's a normal asian complexion.
Sally Ride was always my astronaut waifu
