When the team at Gumstix found out that Andrew Smith is included in the Top 72, we supported him on his journey to be one of the two potential astronauts representing the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), both on Earth and in Space.
Now, we are excited that our Lead Engineer made it to the Top 32 after rigorous physical and mental tests that will push anyone to their limits.

Andrew Smith visits schools
Despite his busy schedule, Andrew finds time to inspire young Canadians to work hard both inside and outside of the classroom. Yesterday, Andrew spent the whole day with students from Holy Rosary Catholic School in Belleville, ON. Students asked great questions from “is there WiFi there?” to “how long will you be gone?” and Andrew answered the questions with ease.
We will continue to support Andrew on his quest to be an astronaut for the CSA. If you want to learn the latest about Andrew’s journey, follow him on Twitter @AndrewCSmith32. You may also follow Gumstix (@gumstix) for more updates.
