German Astronaut Alexander Gerst took time off from his duties on the International Space Station to speak to reporters. DW's Zulfikar Abbany was at the press conference and asked Gerst whether he had any muscle memory from his last time in space.
From his unique perspective on the International Space Station, Alexander Gerst sent back images of Germany parched and brown due to the heatwave. But the situation in his home region should improve before he returns.
What does it mean to "graduate" from astronaut training? Matthias Maurer can tell you. The European astronaut of German descent also has some advice that might help failing students.
Today Astro-Alex and his colleagues arrive at the ISS. After two days of travel, they need to be patient a little while longer: The docking maneuver will take around two hours. You can follow it live.
Alexander Gerst has said in a live-call event from the International Space Station that returning there proved surprisingly easy. Responding to a DW question, he said some of the processes were "like riding a bicycle."
