How long will the training run for?
The process of actually going to space is a fairly extensive one. In Space Nation, each year is split into several phases. There are the weeks and months of Basic Training through our Space Nation Astronaut Program, accessible via smartphones. Then there is an assessment period, followed by an invitational two-week Astronaut Bootcamp.
From the bootcamp, a dozen astronaut hopefuls are selected for a reality competition, which consists of several weeks of filmed production.
For the final winners this is just the beginning, as they will undergo additional mission training for the actual space flight. The more demanding the trip to space will be, the longer the final training will take. In the initial years of Space Nation, this period is most likely only a number of weeks, while later, more challenging trips will require more training.
