  1. Ich hoffe sehr, dass ich mich für die nächste Rekrutierung nach Abschluss meines Medizinstudiums und etwas Berufserfahrung bewerben kann, die Voraussetzungen würden alle schon mal zutreffen! Ich dachte nicht, dass ich irgendwann Mal die Möglichkeit dazu bekomme, aber das löst wirklich Glücksgefühle aus! Ist man nach der Rekrutierung den Rest seines Lebens Astronaut und arbeitet nebenher im eigentlichen Beruf weiter? Machen einige Astronauten das so? Ich bin sehr aufgeregt und freue mich auf das was kommt!
