5. What’s your favourite thing to eat on the ISS?
6. Are you scared of the return flight or of everyday life on Earth?
7. Do you think that the increasing commercialization of space travel brings a positive or negative effect with it? If you could choose who could come as a tourist to the ISS during your mission, who would you choose?
8. Can you have a private life?

13. What do you have to learn when you learn to fly the shuttle? Do you have to do homework?
