The International Space Station is home to a crew of usually three to six astronauts and cosmonauts who are conducting various scientific research. Operators from NASA, ESA (European Space Agency), CSA (Canadian Space Agency), JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency), and Roscosmos are conducting things like growing high-quality protein crystals, supporting water purification efforts, and many more.
If you consider yourself a space hero, then you should know that there’s a TV competition show in the works that will be called just like that. Be the ‘Space Hero’ of the show, and you’ll get to win the prize of your life.
Win a trip to the International Space Station in 2023
The SpaceX Dragon crew spacecraft is set to make the trip to the space station in 2023. In order to qualify, you’ll have to win a competition among “everyday people from any background who share a deep love for space exploration.” Of course, having a deep love for something also requires deep knowledge, and you’ll have to prove them both in order to become the winner. The competition will include physical challenges, but also puzzles, problem-solving tasks, and emotionally challenging scenarios.
To make this wonderful scenario possible, the production team is collaborating with both the private space travel services provider Axiom Space and NASA.
SpaceX never has enough
Elon Musk’s aerospace company doesn’t show any signs that it wants to slow down with its ambitious projects. For the upcoming days, the company will launch a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the 13th batch of Starlink broadband satellites. Therefore, 60 more such satellites will be lifted into orbit from pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
SpaceX and the International Space Station sure make up an interesting team, and we’re eagerly looking forward to see what they can bring next.
