Happy International Day of Human Spaceflight 👩‍🚀

Celebrating big milestones on this day like the first flight of a person into space, and the inaugural flight of the Space Shuttle. &, importantly for my class and I, successfully finishing up our final exams.

Enjoy Yuri’s Night!

Do you know how to survive in the wild?🏔️

A couple of weeks ago, I underwent winter survival training in the Pyrénées. Stunning view, physical exercises, and a lot a fresh air… below 0°C to be precise🥶.

Why? Simply because as future astronauts, we must be prepared to survive in the wild if our spacecraft lands in a remote area.

Among other things, we learnt how to effectively manage cold-related injuries ⛄️, construct makeshift stretchers 🩼, make fires 🔥or build snow shelters❄️.

Every day, we practiced navigating without relying on electronic devices like a GPS, communicating efficiently during emergencies and signalling for rescue; we even had a helicopter coming to practice evacuations 🚁!

A fruitful experience, mentored by @Astro_Alex, with my fellow candidate astronauts @Soph_astro, @Astro_Pablo_A, @Astro_Rosemary, @ESAastro_Marco  as well as @AussieAstroKat  and @iamfivetoes!

I wish you all a nice (and warm) weekend🙂

Now that the actuator was taken off earlier today, it's replacement is being installed.

It looks like the chopsticks are getting upgraded—this large actuator has been lifted for installation. Maybe this is in preparation for the potential catch on IFT-5?

Commercial Space Flight General / Re: ARCA

ARCA has been active for 25 years, during which time it has announced about a couple of dozen projects, including orbital rockets, participated in the Google Lunar X Prize (it withdrew), was supposed to be testing something for ESA, publishes more propaganda videos every few weeks.... And in that time it has shown absolutely nothing working (apart from stratospheric balloons at the very beginning).

Here a list of ambitious early announcements by the association, and then the company, getting more and more nutty: : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARCAspace.
