The Hungarian astronaut can start his mission at the end of 2024 or the beginning of 2025.
The government decided to send a researcher to the International Space Station as part of Hungary’s space industry strategy to test various devices and perform experiments there for 30 days.
The Hungarian astronaut will be part of an international team of four.
Four Hungarian candidates are training for the mission, but only one of them will go on the trip. The four candidates will be trained in Austin and Houston in October. The decision on which of them can go may be made shortly before the space flight.
