On February 28th we had the pleasure of presenting to the Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli the folder containing one of the covers which ATV-2 carried last year to the ISS. Paolo Nespoli had personally recovered from the ATV the covers which were then signed by him and the by the other 5 members of the Expedition 26-27: Dmitry Kondratyev, Cady Coleman, Andrey Borisenko, Alexander Samokutyaev and Ron Garan.
“The AS.IT.AF. flown and signed cover is presented in an elegant folder designed by our member the artist Alec Bartos and is reserved for the AS.IT.AF. members only. ” http://www.asitaf.it
