ESA Astronaut Discusses Life in Space with Aspiring Students

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 53 Flight Engineer Paolo Nespoli of ESA (European Space Agency) discussed how students can aspire to be astronauts and engineers during a “Mission X” competition in-flight event Nov. 29. Mission X is an international educational challenge, focusing on fitness and nutrition that encourages students to train like an astronaut. Teams of primary school-aged students (8-12 years old) learn the principles of healthy eating and exercise, compete for points by finishing training modules, and learn about the world's future in space and educational possibilities for their own future.
