Can’t you agree to stay locked up? Your level of patience with your children is already reaching its limits, only D + 10 from the start of
containment? Do you no longer see your friends eating you up? Are you unable to control your appetite and are worried about leaving your home while driving at the end of the pandemic? So many normal questions in a situation that is not for anyone.
No one, except astronauts, used to living locked up in a small space, with the same people, for long weeks and sometimes months. These confinement pros have decided to come to the aid of all earthlings in need of confinement. This Thursday evening, the European Space Agency is organizing, in partnership with Ateroid day, a direct on its
Web TV and on the
ESA Youtube channel.
We invite you to an online festival this Thursday 26 from 4 to 9 p.m. (🇫🇷 to 7 p.m.) with our partner @AsteroidDay, many astronauts – including @AstroSamantha, @Thom_astro & @astro_JFrancois – as well as celebrities …
