David Saint-Jacques may not be a household name… yet! But he's likely to become one. He's only the 10th Canadian astronaut to go into space. He's assigned to spend six and a half months on the International Space Station conducting various experiments and operating the Canadarm. At 49 years of age, Saint-Jacques’ journey to space is as interesting as how he became an astronaut. The man had three accomplished careers, including engineer, astrophysicist and medical doctor, before applying to the Canadian Space Agency. In 2009, he was accepted to take part in training to become an astronaut; training that is both mentally and physically challenging. On December 3, 2018, he blasted off aboard a Russian Soyuz rocket bound for the International Space Station. This is the story of Saint-Jacques: the man and his mission.
