Finally… A guide to help you become the next European astronaut!

Hi Wannabe Astronaut!

As you already know, a new European astronaut selection campaign will take place from March 31 to May 29, 2021.

12 years that we wait for it… Finally the big day is coming soon!

This is a unique opportunity to try to join the current 7 European astronauts and to contribute to the present and future objectives of ESA towards the International Space Station, the Moon and beyond.

The excitement is HUGE across Europe and thousands of wannabe astronauts are super-motivated! As with each new selection, the competition will be TOUGH …

The GOOD news is we have anticipated this 🙂 It’s been several months since we know that a new European astronaut selection campaign was scheduled for early 2021 (in fact it was scheduled for late 2020, but it has been postponed largely because of the current pandemic context). Therefore, for several weeks we have been creating step by step a unique tool to coach all those who ask us for help. And this tool, we called it …
