I need more Space

Fyodor Yurchikhin always wanted to be a cosmonaut. As a senior engineer in Russia’s space program, he wasn’t satisfied playing a supporting role. After 11 years of trying, Fyodor was finally accepted as a cosmonaut candidate at the ripe old age of 38.

Five missions and 672 days in space later, his family still worries when he’s away ‘at work.’ But 59-year-old Yuri’s not so sure he’s had enough.
