Being able to work well in a team is a very useful skill on the ISS, but also at school! Think of all the times you have worked with someone else. Maybe you partnered up on work at school, played a group game with your friends, or helped with cooking dinner?
Having hobbies and doing something relaxing in your free time is a great way to stay happy and keep your mind healthy. Astronauts on the ISS also get free time to relax and enjoy their time in space.
Keeping fit and doing daily exercise is very important for astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS) and on Earth. Think of all the exercise you do without realising – walking, running or even going up and down stairs. You may also play sports or do activities that require you to exercise like playing football, swimming or even horse riding.
Staying healthy and eating a balanced diet is very important for astronauts on board the International Space Station, but also on Earth. Astronauts must get all their nutrients in their meals, whilst ensuring they have enough food to last them throughout their mission.
Your Mission: Follow Samantha Cristoforetti’s routine at the International Space Station for one week and compare her daily tasks to yours. Observe your everyday routine and keep a record of it.
