Before Going To Space This Astronaut Had To Solve Three Challenging Puzzles, Can You?

As children, we awed at the mere thought of becoming an astronaut when we grow up. As adults, we continued to awe. Astronauts have fascinating yet challenging jobs. They have seen the space! Been there, lived in it! But did you know that there were a set of puzzles they were asked to solve before they left the blue planet? The puzzles are a part of the selection test for astronauts.

Recently, astronaut Tim Peak shared three puzzles that he solved for his astronaut selection test. Peake spent 186 days in 2016 on the International Space Station.

He has recently written a book titled, ‘The Astronaut Selection Test Book: Do You Have What It Takes?’ which comes out in October this year.
