Luca Parmitano, the first Italian astronaut to take part in a spacewalk:
“After shaving more carefully than usual (I don’t want to have any cuts on my head or face), I have a particularly big breakfast – there’ll be no lunch today. Then I turn to Chris [Cassidy], and he must have been able to read the question on my face, because he answers even before I have time to speak: "Yes, let's do this". In other words, it’s time.”
I loved this whole story.
