Bringing the universe closer to people and vice a versa, that is Nancy Vermeulen’s personal mission. For that reason, Nancy created the "Space Training Academy".
Nancy was the first in Europe to develop a non-governmental training program in which prospective space travellers can prepare themselves for a space voyage. In 2011 was the kick-off, when Nancy Vermeulen gave training to a future private astronaut of Virgin Galactic.
In collaboration with the Delft University of Technology and Desdemona Simulator Soesterberg, she has developed a unique training programme. The purpose of the training at the Space Training Academy is to prepare genuine space tourists and suborbital scientists for space travel both physically and psychologically.
