Pictured here: ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, who will serve as a flight engineer on Expedition 42/43 aboard the ISS, practicing extravehicular activity (aka "EVA" aka repairs in spaaaaaace") in the Partial Gravity Simulator test area in the Space Vehicle Mock-up Facility at NASA's Johnson Space Center.
