The finalists for the 3rd edition of Astronaut for a Day have already been decided

For the third consecutive year, the Portuguese Space Agency is giving 30 young students the opportunity to make a parabolic flight. For the first time, there are finalists from Madeira, Castelo Branco and Viana do Castelo.

After months of qualifying rounds that put the various skills of the candidates to the test, the 30 finalists for the 2024 edition of Astronaut for a Day are now known. The third edition of the national competition organised by the Portuguese Space Agency will again allow the finalists to experience the sensation of zero gravity that astronauts feel in space.
