Jehan and I had a lot of fun shooting the astronaut Major Dr Faiz
He's a black belt in karate and the only belt I have is for my jeans lol so here we are just goofing around in the gym segment. Then, we adjourned to the space training centre which I found fascinating.
The selection process is really stringent. Not just anyone can become an astronaut. You need to be physically and mentally fit. Apparently, you also need to speak Russian coz all the knobs in the space shuttle are in Russian. They also had trainings done in the snow just so that they could experience harsh temperatures.
One of the most awful training exercises Major Dr Faiz was telling me he had to do was being spun round and round rapidly in a chair. He said it was nauseating. I guess it must've been like one of those spinning tea cups in Disneyland but much worse! :)
