Normally on 2nd May I will go to the EAC, The European Astronaut Center, in Cologne. I will join professor André Aubert ( cardiology ) of my university to a lecture he will give for Thomas Reiter ( he will normally travel with the spaceshuttle in the summervacation ) and several other ESA-astronauts about an experiment they will perform on the ISS ( called 'CardioCog' ). André Aubert is one of the only doctors who can investigate everybody who goes into space: astronauts, cosmonauts and taikonauts. This weekend he will travel to the landingspot of the soyuz next week to investigate the astronauts. In the summervacation he will be in Cape Canaveral and so on, and on, and on :wink: ! What a life :D !

EAC - home base of the European Astronaut Corps


The European Astronaut Centre of the European Space Agency is situated in Cologne, Germany. It was established in 1990 as a result of Europe's commitment to human space programmes and is the home base of the 13 European astronauts who are members of the European Astronaut Corps.

The role of the EAC is to prepare and implement astronaut training programmes for a variety of missions, including those for the International Space Station. It also coordinates astronaut training between ESA and its International Space Station Programme partners.
EAC is responsible for the preparation, planning and scheduling of the European astronauts' tasks and flight assignments as well as coordinating astronaut activities with other countries. The EAC provides support ranging from public relations assistance to medical monitoring. This support, which includes support to the families of astronauts both at home or abroad, is especially important during extended stays by astronauts on space flight missions and at ESA's partner training centres.

Finally, EAC supports ESA's astronaut candidate selections.

Wow! Now I am even more in awe PJ! To know such great people and to do such great things... Wow! The most I get to do is plan a five day summer programme to teach kids about space. (I should have studied to become a teacher.) Have a wonderful time at the EAC and be sure to share your stories and pictures.

PJ, it is so great you have been to the ESTEC! I live close to it. Well close... half hour travelling by train. But I went there very often and I love the place! I am going there next week again during my holidays.
