Though it is a few months from now, we will all want to see a full report when you get back from your trip!

You can be sure, you'll get it :-)

Actually I am preparing for my trip on different ways:

- doing a lot of sports (Jogging)
- upgrade my English-Knowledge
- doing flight trainings as a Sporty Pilot (especially landigs/approaches without engine support)

I know, this isn't neccessary, but it's fun to be engaged in this subject :-D

Allerdings bin ich mir sicher, dass Ihr Englisch besser als mein Deutsch...
Work on space terms. I was on a team with a Japanese doctor, and she couldn't understand all the abbreviations and space terms, so she felt like she wasn't getting much out of the experience. I tried to explain that it is hard for an English-speaker to understand but I don't think she believed me.

I am trying to learn some aviation terms. If you have a list or something similar, it would be helpful.

:-)

On the other hand, I think I know (more or less) a lot of space-terms :-)

Local press took attention to my facebook-postings about space academy in 2017.
I think here it is very special, when somebody takes part in this program, so that German press (local) picked this subject (see jpg file)

I felt good about myself, in that my college-level German (I graduated in 1998) served me well through that article. I didn't understand all of it, but I got the general idea of the article.
Das ist ein guter Artikel, die Sie stolz sein müssen, Oliver!
