Paolo Nespoli, 60 years old, three times in space, is the first 60-year-old astronaut who will work for a long-term mission. In 1962 John Glenn was the first American to orbit our planet and in 1998 at the age of seventy-seven he went to space once again, but only for ten days. - Photo © Alessandro Barteletti
