      Hi PatrisAwsome,

      No I deal with the astronauts’ bodies and attempt tho fix them! My work involves researching the best ways to keep astronauts healthy in space.

      Nope- I fix people. I did fix jet engines when i was younger, but now I’m a physio I only work with people.

      I used to build/fix rocket engines a long time ago. Then I fixed mining equipment and industrial machines and now I help with experiments on the International Space Station. Fixing rockets is for our Russian colleagues at Roscosmos because they do all the Soyuz crew and Progress cargo/fuel that are essential to humanspaceflight.
