Mission X 2018 open for registration

This is your chance to be part of Mission X 2018

Mission X is an international project led by the UK Space Agency, NASA and ESA and involving 29 different countries.

Mission X participants train like an astronaut, learn principles of healthy eating and exercise, compete for points by finishing training modules, and get excited about the world's future in space and the educational possibilities for their own future.

This year the ESA Astronaut Paolo Nespoli is the Mission X ambassador. Paolo is currently on the ISS and will be returning in December.

There will be two challenge periods: Walk around the Earth - October 2017 to December 2017 and the main challenge Walk to the Moon – Jan 15 to April 26 2018.

Teams of students will practice scientific reasoning and teamwork while participating in hands-on training missions targeting strength, endurance, coordination, balance, spatial awareness, and more.

Interested? Teams should register here to receive more information from ESERO-UK.

Use code PAOLO2018 when registering.
