World's first disabled astronaut announced
BBC, 24 Nov 2022
British Paralympic sprinter John McFall has been chosen as the first disabled astronaut by the European Space Agency.
McFall's leg was amputated after a motorcycle crash when he was 19. He became a professional athlete and represented the UK at the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing.
The announcement does not mean McFall is guaranteed to go into orbit, but he will be part of a feasibility programme to see if that would be possible.
