Astronauts Roberg Curbeam, Christer Fuglesang and Mark Polansky at Stockholm University

Fuglesang and Crewmates in Sweden

Sweden’s first astronaut, Christer Fuglesang, is back in Sweden on a European tour – along with his Discovery space shuttle crewmates Robert Curbeam, Nicholas Patrick, Joan Higginbotham, and Mark Polansky.

On Tuesday the five astronauts are visiting the University of Stockholm before meeting lawmakers at the Swedish parliament.

The aim of the visit – which also includes Norway, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands – is to spark interest amoung young students here in space research.
