      All astronauts are “the greatest”. Really!

      They go through very though selection processes just to be become an astronaut in the first place. And then they spend years and years training for their missions. So every single astronaut that flies is prepared to handle all the equipment and perform all the experiments that the scientist need. So they are all really prepared for everything that can happen in space and we are there to support them all the way!
