Barbie doll styled after ESA astronaut on sale for World Space Week

The first Italian woman to launch into space is no longer a one-of-a-kind Barbie.

Samantha Cristoforetti, an astronaut with the European Space Agency (ESA), made her debut as part of the fashion doll line three years ago, but only as a couple of one-off models for display. Now, Cristoforetti’s Signature Role Model Barbie doll is for sale and is raising funds for a scholarship in celebration of “Women in Space,” the theme of this year’s World Space Week that began on Monday (Oct. 4).
