Furthermore, he will perform virtual reality testing, contributing to increased mental well-being for astronauts on long missions in space, and he will also be bringing a 3D printer to be tested for printing spare parts in zero gravity. In addition, he will contribute to a large communication project aiming to boost children and young people’s interest in science and technology.
