italian astronaut samantha cristoforetti drew much attention in china after she quoted some classic poems on social media. "looking up, i see the immensity of the cosmos; bowing my head, i look at the multitude of the world. the gaze flies, the heart expands, the joy of the senses can reach its peak, and indeed, this is true happiness." these lines belong to a famous work, preface to the poems composed at the orchid pavilion, written by the notable chinese poet wang xizhi. the text was accompanied by photos of china taken from the space station.
