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).

Meet our Canadian astronauts on active service.

Congratulations to Jenni Sidey-Gibbons and Joshua Kutryk for having completed their two-year basic training in Houston, Texas! They have now obtained the official title of astronaut.
