Space flight is the high point in an astronaut’s career. It is a rare opportunity in the aerospace industry. The astronaut prepares to carry out the mission entrusted to him or her by the space agency to which he or she belongs.
Since astronauts are rarely among the stars, what are their main daily missions? They are quite diverse. It could be participation in ongoing space activities or simulations, maintenance of his theoretical and practical knowledge through regular training, the performance of maintenance work or cooperation in international meetings in the field.

Few astronauts have left Earth more than five times in their entire career. A future astronaut must be able to justify a minimum of 1,000 flight hours.
It should also be noted that the international space agencies are mainly looking for candidates with a strong academic background and in line with the needs of future space experiments.
In terms of specialization, the profiles sought must have a solid knowledge of the scientific field. Physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, or medicine. The more diversified the area of expertise, the higher the chances of participating in space programs.
The post of astronaut requires above all an iron constitution. As the number of elected officials remains derisory, it is unthinkable to exercise this profession without a passion for the field of space and aeronautics.
When the Agency decides to recruit, it advertises in the various institutions that can provide candidates, such as flight test centers, scientific laboratories, and universities.
There is no “training” as such to become an astronaut. In any case, a high-level scientific background (doctorate) is still the best asset. But one thing is sure: astronauts are not recruited right out of school.
The recruitment parameters of space agencies are not limited to intellectual or technical faculties. The candidate’s physical and psychological aptitudes are also scrutinized (age, height, medical certificate, etc.).
