Royal Republic: Everybody Wants To Be An Astronaut

So, everybody wants to be an astronaut? Honestly, I am not quite sure about that. The longer I work with astronauts, the more I respect their job. Sure, there is still a lot of fascination. But I also see how hard they have to work to archive their goals – to be one of the few human beings having the opportunity to look back on our planet from space.

A wise young lady who I met at the European Astronaut Centre put it this way:

They fly into space so we don’t have to.

And she’s right.
