What is the Astronaut Leadership Experience?
When NASA forms an astronaut team, they undertake leadership and team building in remote areas.
The Astronaut Leadership Experience (ALE) is based on the NASA programmes and is led by an astronaut.
ALE provides a challenging, fun and exciting blend of skill building and personal growth that focuses on responsibility for oneself, other team members, supporting the leader and care for the environment.
