What Does it Take to Be Canada’s Next Astronaut? (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

In June 2016, the Canadian Space Agency issued the fourth call in its history to recruit two new astronauts. There have been only 12 astronauts in the history of the agency, eight of whom have flown in space. Canadian astronauts must be resourceful, experienced in a technical profession and display integrity and the best judgment. The selection process is difficult, both physically and mentally, and competition is fierce to earn one of the spots. This presentation chronicles the instructor’s own journey and experiences in the competition, from one of almost 4,000 applicants to the shortlist of 72 candidates and beyond.
