And blast off! What a start to the new year. Year 5 spent the day at St. James’ Astronaut Training Camp and learnt all about what it is like to train for their chance to explore space.
We took part in a fitness test, learnt the importance of staying hydrated, working together as a team and had several memory tests. After each mission, the recruits earnt a stamp in their training log.
Additionally, we had the opportunity of trying astronaut food. This food lasts for up to 2 years and is specially dehydrated so that astronauts are able to eat fruit and remain healthy in space!
