An astronaut or cosmonaut is a person trained by a spaceflight programme to command, pilot, or be a crew member of an expedition to space in a spacecraft.
Astronauts must wear special pressurised spacesuits to protect them from radiation and allow them to breathe. They also wear an undergarment with a network of tubes circulating cool water to maintain the correct body heat.
This astronaut pendant is made from lead-free pewter and is supplied on a waxed cord. The information card is full colour on the front and has information on the reverse.
