Due July 29th, 2018 - Xploration Station is looking for their next #StudentAstronaut! This year's #StudentAstronaut contest is going international! One incredible student will join Xploration Outer Space host, Emily Calandrelli, on an all-expenses-paid trip to Russia to train like a cosmonaut and be featured in a Season 5 episode this winter. The winner and Emily Calandrelli will spend a day at the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center located in Star City, Russia and participate in the following activities:

   - Ride in a human centrifuge to experience launch and decent level G-forces;
   - Taste testing different types of astronaut food;
   - Learn the proper way to put on a space suit; and
   - Beginner-level flight training in a Soyuz spacecraft simulator.

The winner and Emily Calandrelli will also take in the beautiful sights of Moscow during a tour of the Kremlin and Red Square sponsored by Spasibo Tours. The entire experience will be featured on a special episode of Xploration Outer Space, where the winner will get the opportunity to appear onscreen as a guest co-host alongside Emily Calandrelli.
