Picture book for young space fans created by astronaut André Kuipers

André, the little astronaut, gets a visit. His cousin wants to know how to become a good astronaut. Does an astronaut have to be brave enough to climb up very high? Be able to swim very well? And how do you carry out tests in space when everything floats? Little André answers all the questions in a playful manner. Finally, they arrive at a special place where a real astronaut secret is revealed. In 'How can I become an astronaut?', the child is young André Kuipers' cousin. Put on your helmet and be amazed by the wonderful world of space travel!

André Kuipers (born in Amsterdam, 5 October 1958) is a Dutch astronaut with the European Space Agency (ESA). After Lodewijk van den Berg and Wubbo Ockels, he is the third Dutch-born astronaut and, after Wubbo Ockels, the second astronaut of Dutch nationality to go into space. Kuipers' first space flight took place as part of the Delta mission. With this book, André hopes to inspire the dreamers, thinkers, doers and daredevils of the future to look beyond their own horizons. There, new worlds lie waiting to be discovered.
