      Hi Elodie#SpaceInvasion!

      There have been lot’s of great moments for me (graduating from medical school, assisting in an operation for the first time, going to the North Pole…). Having said that I guess this experience here in Antarctica has been the highlight for me. I really enjoy working for ESA and think that the research we are doing here is v.interesting and has great potential to be useful to help preserve the health of astronauts during future spaceflight missions. Antarctica is also an amazing place to live and you should definitely come and visit if you have the chance! The night skies are incredible as are the Southern lights. I’m also looking forward to having the opportunity to see a penguin in their natural habitat on my return journey home.
