Agnieszka is passionate about human space life and always hoped to explore space. Her dream several years ago is to cross the Karman Line— the border between the Earth’s atmosphere and outer space and being part of the AdvancingX program as an astronaut candidate is just one of the steps she takes towards the goal.


In one of the published articles, she mentioned that she launched a Facebook Page called Dark Horse Project. Darkhorse is a less-known person but who unexpectedly wins or succeeds. She explains that her dream wasn’t something that others in her Polish community took seriously. People laughed at her for wanting to become an astronaut, which made Agnieszka feel like the dark horse in the race of life.


That’s what she is— an ambitious and goal-driven amazing woman from Poland! A well-deserved position in Top women in Aerospace and Aviation.

I am passionate about human space flight. That’s why I train by participating in analog missions and astronaut training to become Polish Astronaut in the future.

I am an Astronaut Candidate in AdvancingX program. I took part in analog missions in Poland as an analog astronaut, mainly as Commander. Moreover, I take part in space projects as an engineer. For example, I participate in PW-Sat3 project, where I am responsible for radio communication between satellite and ground station.

It could be also a good source of information and examples of what other people can do if they would like to become an astronaut 🙂
