    draq: in my opinion, your dream is to be an astronaut; if that is true, try and get into an internship that will focus on that and bring you closer to your dream. War is not for you. And for that, it does not matter where you go; try to go where they have the best facilities that will teach you the most. Where you will be happy.

    have you ever looked up the requirements to even get into NASA as an astronaught? (and i dont mean google them up now and pretend you knew).

    thier is very very tighht and strict physical conditions you must pass. and some of them you cant train to fit the bill, like having enough stamina and breath. or withstanding the G force test. i mean the height weight and other restrictions.


    how about checking if he is even able first due to genes.


    peace.

    He does not have to start as an astronaut; he is training in design. Once he gets in, he can decide if its what he really wants; an internship will improve his prospects.

    incorrect,


    Basic requirements for an Astronaut Pilot include the following:

    1. Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science, or mathematics. An advanced degree is desirable. Quality of academic preparation is important.

    2. At least 1,000 hours pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft. Flight test experience is highly desirable.

    3. Ability to pass a NASA space physical which is similar to a military or civilian flight physical and includes the following specific standards:
    Distant visual acuity: 20/100 or better uncorrected, correctable to 20/20 each eye.
    Blood pressure: 140/90 measured in a sitting position.
    Height between 64 and 76 inches.


    Mission Specialists

    Mission specialist astronauts work with the commander and the pilot and have overall responsibility for coordinating operations in the following areas: systems, crew activity planning, consumables usage, and experiment/payload operations. Mission specialists are trained in the details of the onboard systems, as well as the operational characteristics, mission requirements/ objectives, and supporting equipment/systems for each of the experiments conducted on their assigned missions. Mission specialists perform extravehicular activities (EVAs), or space walks, operate the remote manipulator system, and are responsible for payloads and specific experiment operations.

    Mission Specialist Astronaut Duties

    Mission specialist astronauts, working with the commander and pilot, have overall responsibility for the coordination of Shuttle operations in the areas of crew activity planning, consumables usage, and experiment and payload operations. Mission specialists are required to have a detailed knowledge of Shuttle systems, as well as detailed knowledge of the operational characteristics, mission requirements and objectives, and supporting systems and equipment for each payload element on their assigned missions. Mission specialists will perform extravehicular activities, payload handling using the remote manipulator system, and perform or assist in specific experiment operations.


    Basic requirements for a Mission Specialist include the following:

    1. Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science, or mathematics. Degree must be followed by at least three years of related, progressively responsible, professional experience. An advanced degree is desirable and may be substituted for part or all of the experience requirement (master's degree = 1 year of experience, doctoral degree = 3 years of experience). Quality of academic preparation is important.

    2. Ability to pass a NASA space physical, which is similar to a military or civilian flight physical and includes the following specific standards:
    Distance visual acuity: 20/200 or better uncorrected, correctable to 20/20, each eye.
    Blood pressure: 140/90 measured in a sitting position.
    3. Height between 58.5 and 76 inches.

    Payload Specialists

    Payload specialists are persons other than NASA astronauts (including foreign nationals) who have specialized onboard duties; they may be added to shuttle crews if activities that have unique requirements are involved and more than the minimum crew size of five is needed.

    First consideration for additional crew members is given to qualified NASA mission specialists. When payload specialists are required they are nominated by NASA, the foreign sponsor, or the designated payload sponsor. In the case of NASA or NASA-related payloads, the nominations are based on the recommendations of the appropriate Investigator Working Group (IWG).

    Although payload specialists are not part of the Astronaut Candidate Program, they must have the appropriate education and training related to the payload or experiment. All applicants must meet certain physical requirements and must pass NASA space physical examinations with varying standards depending on classification.

    My brother's bunk mate was Lithuanian and spoke fluent Russian. My brother said as soon as boot camp was over he was gone. The higher ups grabbed him. Little did they know 9/11 was coming and they would need guys who spoke a totally different language.
