TikTok has finally reached the final frontier. ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti recently filmed the first tick tock from ISS. Crystophoretti arrives at the International Space Station on April 27 as part of SpaceX’s Crew-4 mission. She and three other crew members will be stationed at ISS for six months. To help celebrate his second tour of the ISS, Cristoforetti shared 88 seconds Tick tock Video on May 5, 2020.
Check out the first TikTok from ISS
In the video, Cristoforetti guides viewers through the lead-up to the launch of the Dragon spacecraft. The Dragon is the rocket that sent the Crew-4 to the International Space Station. She introduced the mission to two zero-G indicators, a tortoise named Sippy, and a stuffed monkey called Eta.
Etta is an acronym for Sosimieta, as explained by Christophoreti in a tick tock taken from the ISS. The complete word in Italian means “little monkey”. Monkey Plush, daughter of Christophoreti, was chosen. Also, this is the first expensive toy she has ever bought for her daughter Kelsey. The tortoise was chosen by another daughter of the astronaut.
Although we’ve seen other social media coverage from the station, this is the first TikTok from ISS. As such, it is a very important moment, especially for space fans in general. Seeing one of the biggest advances NASA, ESA and other space agencies are making to explore space in Tiktok is a great way to help make us more aware of what we are trying to do there.
In addition, Cristoforetti has already increased its audience Tick tock Led to her mission to the ISS last month.
More to come
Seeing the first TikTok from the ISS gives me hope for what kind of other content I see from there. NASA plans Retire from ISS In 2030. We only have a few years to teach everyone what we do on site. Plus, TikTok is a great way to record those trips for a large audience to experience.
Of course, the team at ISS is busy, actually doing what they are sent to do. But I can not wait to see more TikToks from the ISS in the coming days, weeks and months.
