Samantha 2

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Yesterday was a fun day as astronaut Samantha Cristoferetti visited our sound stage.  Samantha was in for Yuri’s Night the annual celebration of Yuri Gagarin’s first flight into space.  I was able to bring her up to the studio for some photo ops and to see what she is getting into!

Diana and Samantha with Admiral Janeway’s costume!

Samantha is awesome, fascinating to talk to and she speaks 5 languages!  And the first person to wear a Star Trek costume in space!

We had a blast and look forward to having Samantha back.



  • Samantha IS awesome! <3

    "…to see what she is getting into!" Hmmm… what indeed! =P

    Maybe Diana would like to take a ride on a rocket to see what Samantha went through!
