CAIRO – 3 April 2019: Italian Astronaut and engineer of the European Space Agency (ESA) Paolo Nespoli will be attending the 3rd scientific seminar hosted by the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology in Cairo on April 10.

Nespoli, 61, is one of Europe’s oldest astronauts who arrived home in 2017 after a 139-day stay on the International Space Station. This was his third mission to space.

During the mission “his body, eyes, sleeping patterns, and eating habits were closely monitored as scientists try to understand how humans adapt to life in space,” according to Euronews website.

A veteran astronaut, Nespoli further completed 60 experiments on board the ISS in ESA's Colombus science lab module.

The statement released by the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology said that registration for the seminar takes place online via its website.
