Winning teams of the Odysseus contest will visit the European Astronaut Centre in Köln, 13 November 2012

The European Space Agency is actively supporting the Odysseus contest and is providing to the winning teams of the Odysseus contest the opportunity to visit the training centre of ESA’s astronauts in Köln, Germany. The winning teams of each theme category, plus the most favourable team of the participants’ voting, will be given a guided tour of the facilities of the European Astronaut Centre (EAC), where they will be able to meet with astronauts and to learn all about the selection, recruitment and training of ESA’s astronauts for space missions. As it has been already announced, apart from the visit to EAC, the winning teams will also travel to the Netherlands, where they will visit the Space Expo and the European Space Research and Technology Center of ESA.
