"The Sun never really sets in outer space," writes Cristoferetti

(LaPresse) Samantha Cristoforetti, the Italian astronaut, has posted a new video from the International Space Station, where she is on a mission.

“In high-beta seasons, such as early May, the plane of our orbit is such that it is never obscured by Earth, which means the Sun never really sets,” wrote Cristoforetti.

Mattel, the US-based toymaker, recently issued a Barbie Doll of Cristoforetti.
