Active Canadian astronauts

David Saint-Jacques and Jeremy Hansen

Canada's active astronauts support space missions in progress and prepare for a future mission by taking extensive training.

They mainly work at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. However, they return to Canada periodically to participate in various activities and encourage young Canadians to pursue their education in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
