Mission X is an international educational challenge, focusing on fitness and nutrition, that encourages students to train like an astronaut.
Teams of young people learn the principles of healthy eating and exercise, take part in training modules, and get excited about the world’s future in space and the educational possibilities for their own future.
Mission X is aimed at students aged 8-12.
