At this Axe Apollo Space Academy the recruits were assigned to several trainings such as a Zero-G training and a G-force flight. Bravery, passion and teamwork were the qualities we looked for in our next class of astronauts. Space is no longer the realm of highly-trained scientists and military personnel. Space is ready to be conquered by a new generation: Generation Astronaut!
