Posted by in category: space travel

“Science is for everyone and space travel hopefully can be for everyone.”

The European Space Agency (ESA) named the first-ever “parastronaut” this week on Wednesday, Nov. 23, meaning the world may soon see the first disabled person go to space.

The agency, made up of 22 nations, chose former British Paralympic sprinter John McFall among 16 other new recruits for astronaut training.
