Experience the selection stages to be an astronaut
Designed in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA), this participatory workshop helps to understand how the recruitment of European astronauts takes place.
ESA is looking for candidates with multiple skills to accomplish future missions to the International Space Station, the Moon and, soon, the planet Mars:
- visual perception,
- spatial awareness,
- manual dexterity,
- physical condition,
- team spirit,
- communication skills …
You will experience, solo and in a team, some tests inspired by the real selection process. Rest assured, this animation is not a training or recruitment session. You will not be evaluated or eliminated. By taking part in the game you will discover the profile of candidates expected by ESA. And who knows? Perhaps this will stimulate ambitions to be an astronaut or engineer?
