Anastasia shares her diverse background in space journalism, cosmonaut simulation projects, and her current Ph.D. research on lunar resources.

Anastasia, a passionate almost cosmonaut, speaks openly about the challenges Russian women face in the Space industry, the cold relationship of her country with Europe, and the disproportion of budget between military and civil mission.
