ISS illustration (NASA) The Canadian government announced this week that it will extend its commitment to the International Space Station through 2024, allowing the nation's two current active astronauts to visit the station. Under the deal, one Canadian astronaut will fly to the ISS by 2019, and the second by 2024. The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) currently has two active astronauts, Jeremy Hansen and David Saint-Jacques, neither of whom have flown in space yet. Canada is the third ISS partner, after the US and Russia, to agree to extend station operations past 2020.
