Germany has chosen two female candidates, one of which will be the first German female astronaut. Out of 400 participants who applied to the program, only six advanced to the selection stage. All of them passed the stringent medical and psychological tests according to the recommendations of the European Space Agency.
In the end, Nicola Baumann and Insa Thiele-Eich were shortlisted among six finalists and presented to the public by Germany's Economy Minister Brigitte Zypries. Both of them have been dreaming to visit the orbit since their childhood. One of the main goals of this project, according to the organizers is to attract girls to technical sciences.
