Do you want to know how to be an astronaut, what is going on at the
International Space Station or how to carry out research in space? ESA’s new
site on human spaceflight is now on line and should be able to supply you
with most of the answers.

The web site of ESA’s Directorate of Manned Spaceflight and Microgravity has
been redesigned to make it more in line with the ESA Web Portal philosophy:
news-oriented, image-rich factual and up-to-date.

On the new site information can be found under five main headings: Astronauts,
the International Space Station, Research in Space, Education and the Future.
The wide variety of subjects covered range from what life is like on a
spacecraft; the possibilities of finding life once you get there; to how
children, and adults, can have their experiments undertaken on the
International Space Station.

Sounds interesting? Check it out on Human Spaceflight,
