During a live appearance from space, Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut David Saint-Jacques will join Peter Schiefke, Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister (Youth); and former CSA astronaut Dr. Robert Thirsk to launch a new exhibition on space and health at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.

During the event, CSA nutrition and exercise specialist, Natalie Hirsch, will lead a "space" exercise session with Saint-Jacques, Thirsk and the audience to demonstrate one of the ways astronauts stay healthy in space.

If time permits, media representatives (on site only) may have the opportunity to ask David Saint-Jacques questions during the question period. 

Media representatives who are unable to attend the event can watch it live (or watch the video afterwards) on the CSA's YouTube channel.

The event will be held in French and English.

The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We strive for reconciliation through knowledge sharing and respectful relationships.
