In a major step towards allowing people of determination to work and live in space, the European Space Agency announced the first-ever astronaut of people of determination,

and the 22-nation agency said it had appointed British Paralympic runner John McFall, to participate in astronaut training, to assess the necessary conditions for people with disabilities to participate in future missions.

The announcement came as the European Space Agency appointed a new group of astronauts for the first time since 2009.

The European Space Agency published vacancies last year for people who are fully capable of passing its usual rigorous psychological, cognitive and other tests, and who are only prevented from becoming astronauts due to existing hardware limitations in view of their disability.

McFall will work with agency engineers to understand the hardware changes needed to open up professional spaceflight to a wider range of qualified candidates, the agency said.

And McFall is a British Paralympic runner, he lost his leg in a motorcycle accident when he was 19 years old.
