Astronaute dans l'espace

On Friday Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Navdeep Bains made an exciting announcement. For the fourth time history, Canada is looking for exceptional people to push the boundaries of science, innovation and space exploration.

From June 17 to August 15, 2016, the Canadian Space Agency is accepting applications from Canadians for the position of astronaut.

The Minister responsible for the CSA, launched Canada's fourth astronaut recruitment campaign. Bains said, "Our astronauts have been a source of national pride for our country. If you have aspired to go beyond our planet's frontier, now is your chance to make this dream a reality. This class of Canadian astronauts will be part of a new generation of explorers to advance critical science and research aboard the International Space Station. Just like the astronauts before them, they will inspire young Canadians to view science and technology as accessible and interesting tools they can use to build their own adventures."
