Mission X 2012: Mission Accomplished!

Astro Charlie reached the Moon thanks to all the children who joined the Mission X challenge to “train like an astronaut.” Together the 300 teams from 15 countries earned challenge points by exercising and learning about fitness and living a healthy lifestyle.

Astronaut Andre Kuipers called from the International Space Station to congratulate the Mission X participants and to declare the 2012 Challenge officially closed. Watch Andre Kuipers announce the winners of this years challenge:
