Background information on the transmission:

This notification replaces an
erroneous notification sent on 6 April.

On 15 April 2005, the next European astronaut will depart for a ten-day mission to the International Space Station, ISS. Roberto Vittori will actually be the first ESA astronaut to make a second flight to the ISS, after his Marco Polo mission in 2002.

The images for this Exchange were recorded at Star City in Moscow, and feature training of Vittori in the Soyuz simulator, plus sound bites on his mission.

The Programme is made of an A-roll (split audio, English and Italian) of five minutes plus a B-roll with clean international sound.

This ESA TV Exchanges feed is transmitted by the European Commission’s “Europe by Satellite” (EbS) service. You can find the complete transmission schedule and download scripts and shot lists, also for ESA TV items, from the EbS Web site at
