Samantha Cristoforetti spent a record-breaking 200 days onboard the International Space Station. Here, she tells us about her remarkable journey. Her book, Diary of an Apprentice Astronaut, is available for pre-order now:

In space the sun rises and sets 16 times a day. You fly over every sea, every mountain and desert, every city and every port. The most ordinary things -- eating, sleeping, brushing your teeth or cutting your hair -- have to be relearned, until they become familiar again. This is the story of Samantha Cristoforetti's incredible journey to becoming an astronaut, and her journey beyond Earth.
