I was recently interviewed by Marco Zambianchi from Forum Astronautico in Italy. You can listen to or download the podcast directly from:

The interview is translated in Italian and the non-translated version is also available. I would like to thank Forum Astronautico for taking the time to interview me and help spread the word and passion of space exploration.

Let me know what you think!

Great Interview just hearing you talk about your thoughts and beliefs makes me even more determined to follow my own whatever people say. Keep up the good work.

Hi, I'm a user, great interview and great blog. I'm reading your blog since few months ago, I'm an aerospace engineer student and I hope to meet you at KSC next October to the STS-120 launch, with other our forum guys.
Thanks a lot for the kindness
See you

Great interview, I am featuring it on my Portuguese language blog 'Em Orbita e Mais Alem' (In Orbit and Beyond) at, and linked to the mp3 of the english version of the interview.

I am sure many people in my country will be interested in what you have to say, now that we are a part of the European Space Agency.

Keep up the excellent work, keep showing us how it's like to work for the Program, and may you one day, sooner rather than later, have the opportunity to become an astronaut!

Hi Damaris. I am another member of In the Italian version of the podcast, I am the voice at the phone who introduces with Marco Zambianchi your interview.

Thanks again for the interview and best wishes for your dream of flying into space -- and, why not?, to the Moon.
