Focusing on fitness and nutrition, Mission X: Train Like an Astronaut is designed to challenge students to be more physically active and to teach how health and fitness plays an important role in human performance in space and on Earth.
The 2013 UK Mission X Challenge Programme was supported by the UK Space Agency.
Teams of students will learn principles of healthy eating and exercise, compete for points by finishing training modules, and get excited about the world's future in space and the educational possibilities for their own future.
