“20 Minutes” explained that France’s most famous astronaut will board the plane on April 22 in a suitcase made in France.
largeThe new residence of Thomas Pesquet, more than 400 kilometers from the earth, promises to be full of sportiness. Not only considering that the “Frenchie” flight mission to be carried out on the International Space Station is a scientific mission, but because he will board the suitcase on April 22, French technology allows him to actually ride a bicycle.Involved 20 minutes.
The software was developed by Fit Immersion, a company headquartered in Errot, and won the favor of CNES (National Center for Space Research). And for good reason: Thanks to virtual reality headsets and exercise bikes, anyone can pedal with the illusion of stepping on the road fixed on the cow floor.
Starting from the two weeks provided by the company, a series of courses were selected specifically for Thomas Pesquet. All of these are shot at 360°. An exercise bike pedal equipped with sensors synchronizes the pace of the scenery with the user’s running speed.
International Space Station, home of unknown bacteria
Thomas Pesquet, 43, will join the International Space Station on April 22 with three other astronauts from Florida on a Space X spacecraft. French astronauts spent nearly 200 days on the European Space Station from late November 2016 to early June 2017.
