No, wait let me rephrase that... Germany will inva... conq.... A German will take over the ISS! Starting May 2018, Alexander Gerst (aka Astro Alex) will be the first German commander of the International Space Station, on his second trip into Orbit.

Like his first trip, this one will take place during the football world cup. Shooting a German off the planet during that time is just mean. It was a lucky charm the last time, though.
Fun Fact: Did you know that German Space Travellers are called Teutonauts? I bet you didn’t! Because I just made that up for a funny caption.
