By completing activities modeled after the real-life physical training of humans traveling in space, students can "train like an astronaut." The NASA Fit Explorer project calls for students to track their progress, learn the science behind nutritional and physical fitness, and relate physical Earth-based needs to the requirements of exploring in space. This flier describes the NASA Fit Explorer project and how teachers and students can be involved.
