  • Training hard for the Astro Agility Course!

    The Italian Space Cadets are working super hard in the school gym! They have learned that agility means moving your body quickly and precisely. The Cadets have also learned about the effects long duration missions have on the bodies of astronauts. Living in a microgravity environment for a long periods of time weakens astronauts muscles as they don't use their muscles like they do on Earth. The effects can be seen when they return to Earth from their mission and they need to do lots of rehabilitation to restore and maintain their agility.

    Here are some pictures taken of the Cadets by Mrs Lu, the Cadet's Strength, Conditioning and Rehabilitation Specialist (their teacher)! The future astronauts did the Astro Agility Course, jumped over hurdles, raced through hoops and did basketball (Astronaut Thomas Pesquet's favourite sport!) training.

    Despite the hard work and sweat, the Italian Space Cadets are enjoying themselves and are improving their agility.
