This episode of the ETH Zurich podcast is all about astrophysics. The first Swiss astronaut Claude Nicollier talks about his flights into space and astrophysicist Judit Szulágyi about her experiences at NASA.

For Claude Nicollier, the dream of flying to space came true four times. Judit Szulágyi - a professor in computational astrophysics at the ETH - has never left the earth's atmosphere so far. She is applying to become one of the next ESA astronauts. We talk to Claude about what planet earth looks like from space, and we ask Judit about her experiences working at NASA and what she thinks it takes to reach for the stars.
