Eduardo Lurueña

Civil Astronaut

Eduardo Lurueña, born in Talavera de la Reina (Toledo), is doctor in acupuncture by ECAN, diploma in Social Work and assistant of Psychiatry, master in the teaching of taichi, meditation, mental control and relaxation techniques, as well as one of the legends in the world of Kung-fu and martial arts.

His simple method of personal improvement, based on mental concentration, is leading him to perform real prodigies, such as the conquest of the International Martial Arts Championship, in which he defeated his rival with his eyes and ears covered, making the pine on the index finger and supporting the thrust of forty people.

He is the first Spanish civil astronaut chosen by the American astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
