This program was developed together with Rai Ragazzi, and talks about outer space in a simple and scientifically accurate way. Thanks to exclusive images shot at the European Space Research and Technology Center (ESTEC), to videos made by the main space agencies in the world, and to the original story written by Tito Faraci, "Space to Ground" is the “guide for galactic travelers.” Enriching it, are clips that astronaut Luca Parmitano shot exclusively on board the Columbus, the research module of the International Space Station.
