Adrianos Golemis has been named the very first Greek to pass European Space Agency’s (ESA) test to become an astronaut.

Euro News revealed that every year, 22,500 applicants apply for the ESA’s exams to become an astronaut, but only 25 make it through all three rounds. 

Golemis has passed the first round after years working as a doctor for the ESA.

“When I was younger, I used to think that the job I’m doing now, that is astronaut doctor, that this is something exotic, it’s not for the Greeks, it’s not for me, it’s for geniuses,” Golemis said.

“This is not the case. Effort, persistence, and of course an inclination and I think we can get there.”
