Curiosity fuels discovery. What’s beyond the yard? Around the corner? Across the border? Above the horizon? What’s beyond that?
Brilliant minds from around the world work together to imagine the future. They use science and technology as tools. Obstacles lead to innovation.
But only a select few fly to space. Astronauts.
They are problem solvers. Scientists. They are dedicated. Fearless. When their bodies want to quit, their spirit sets fire to their step. They are determined. Resilient.
Where is the finish line? There is none. Astronauts train hard and charge into the unknown. They will have to adapt. To experiment.
Luca Parmitano (ESA Astronaut): “I feel a lot of water on the back of my head.”
Luca Parmitano (ESA Astronaut): “Now I experienced what it’s like to be a goldfish in a fishbowl from the point of view of the goldfish.”
Do you have what it takes? It will take everything you’ve got.
