Arne Christer Fuglesang (Stockholm, 18 March 1957) is the first Swedish and Scandinavian astronaut.
Fuglesang, son of a Swedish mother and Norwegian father, graduated as a physical engineer in 1981 at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and in 1987 completed a doctorate in particle physics at the University of Stockholm working in this field in European bodies of technological experiments and developments and as professor of mathematics at the Royal Institute of Technology.
In May 1993, he was selected for the ESA astronaut corps, the European Space Agency, based in Cologne, Germany, and began training in Star City for future collaboration between ESA and Russia at the Mir orbital station. Along with German astronaut Thomas Reiter, he spent the next three years in preparatory training for activities to be performed by him in space, such as extra-vehicular hikes, in-ship engineering activities, and Soyuz operations and piloting, couplings, re-entry and landing; despite acting as a reserve and flight controller for the entire Euromir mission in 1995, Fuglesang was unable to go into space in this period.
In 1996, he joined NASA as a mission specialist astronaut based at the Lyndon Johnson Space Center in Houston and spent the next ten years working on physics experiments and as a space shuttle.
Finally, in 2006, Fuglesang became the first Swedish to go to space, as a mission specialist on the STS-116 Discovery, launched on December 10, 2006 with six more crew members for the International Space Station. The flight is called by ESA, the European agency of which it forms part as an astronaut, of Mission Celsius, in honor of eighteenth-century Swedish scientist Anders Celsius, who created the Celsius temperature scale. On the occasion of this mission, Fuglesang remained in orbit for almost 13 days, completing 203 rounds around Earth. On December 12 he did a 6:36 am space walk with American Robert Curbeam. At the time Fuglesang became the first Swede to walk in outer space. On December 14, the two astronauts returned to a space walk, lasting 5:00 a.m. and on December 18, a third space walk with 6:38 min.
On August 29, 2009, he went to space for the second time, integrating the crew of the STS-128 mission, carried out by the Space Shuttle Discovery. On this mission Fuglesang remained in space for almost 14 days, completing 219 rounds around the Earth. On September 3, he and his colleague John Olivas performed a 6:39 am space walk to perform the exchange of an ammonia tank on the outside of the International Space Station. On September 5, the two astronauts perform a new spacewalk, this time with a time of 7:01 minutes for the installation of different cables between some modules on the outside of the space station.
