The 22-year-old psychology graduate from De La Salle University has been chosen to be the first Filipino to fly into space next year. He was Chino Roque.

A crossfit coach, will join the other 22 contestant from different countries were given the once-in-a-lifetime chance by the Florida-based Axe Apollo Space Academy to travel to space for 30 minutes on board of a Space Expedition Corporation shuttle.

Chino was among three Filipinos who joined 104 other astronaut-aspirants from 60 countries in taking a five-day course at the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando, Florida. 

All aspirants were screened by their strength, stamina, and mental grit, and overall ability to cope with a zero gravity environment.

Then, Chino Roque was chosen. After this free trip on outer space, all individuals are welcome to try this once in a lifetime experience for about $95000 or which is P4Million here in the Philippines.
