  • Have you got what it takes to be an astronaut?

    Part puzzle book, part guide, The Astronaut Selection Test Book: Do You Have What it Takes? invites readers of all ages to attempt the European Space Agency’s rigorous astronaut selection and training program. The book comprises 100 real astronaut tests and training exercises for readers to try at home, and outlines the full ESA selection process for the first time.

    Fascinating, surprising, and ranging in difficulty from easy to fiendishly hard, the tests include visual memory and perception puzzles, concentration tests, maths and mental arithmetic problems, psychological quizzes, teamwork and leadership exercises, survival skills, physical and medical exams, foreign language aptitude tests (ESA astronauts must learn Russian) and more.

    The book, which will be richly illustrated, draws on Tim Peake’s first-hand experiences of applying to ESA to be an astronaut in 2008, when he was selected with just 5 other astronauts from over 8000 applications. A wide range of ESA astronaut trainers have also contributed to the book. An exclusive competition will accompany publication, with details to be announced later this summer.
