Are you working on multiple PhDs in obscure and difficult topics? Can you speak multiple languages, including alienese? Do you suspect, if handed the controls, you could complete the Kessel Run in fewer parsecs than Han Solo? If you said yes to any of these questions you might want to consider becoming an astronaut. In fact, if you’re an American citizen, there’s never been a better time to see if you’ve got the right stuff. NASA has opened up their astronaut corps to the few, the proud, the willing to get motion sickness in zero gravity. To boldly vomit where few have vomited before. In the olden days, you either had to be a chimpanzee or an Air Force test pilot to be allowed to take the controls of a genuine NASA rocket and break free from the surly chains of gravity. When NASA finally upgraded its astronaut corps from chimps to humans in the 1950s to begin the Mercury program, they decided they’d only allow test pilots to apply for the first missions. To fit in the cramped cabin, you had to physically be no taller than 180 cm (5’ 11”), and weigh no more than 82 kg (180 pounds). You needed to have book smarts, too. Astronaut candidates needed at least a bachelor’s degree or the equivalent, but still be under 40 years old. But most importantly, you had to be a test pilot with at least 1,500 hours of flying time and the ability to fly jets. If you didn’t have hours behind the stick, piloting the most insane flying machines dreamt up by those nutty scientists, well then you didn’t have the right stuff. Those qualifications continued through the Gemini and Apollo program, although, they relaxed them somewhat, allowing younger astronauts, and those with less flight time. In the recruitment of astronauts in 1965, they allowed a new class of scientist-astronauts; folks with science degrees and no flight time. The most famous of these was Jack Schmitt, a geologist who walked on the Moon with Apollo 17. NASA now understands that they need astronauts with a wide range of space-based skills, and not just a bunch of test pilots. There are two kinds of people who get to go to space: pilots and mission specialists. The first category are the commanders and pilot astronauts - the folks who actually fly the spacecraft. They’re the ones with thousands of hours behind the stick of a modern jet, the more cockamamie the better. To be qualified as a pilot astronaut, you need to have at least 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time in a jet aircraft. You need to be healthy, with normal blood pressure, good vision and a height between 158 - 191 cm (62 and 75 inches). There are no longer any age restrictions, so astronauts have been selected between 26 and 46 years old. You need a degree in some kind of space-related science, like engineering, mathematics, biological science and physical science. But that’s a minimum. You really want to have an advanced degree, or even multiple degrees. So, if you’re a healthy, eagle-eyed test pilot with a few advanced degrees, you should apply. The other category is the mission specialists. These are the astronauts with specialties that will come into play on a space mission. For example: doctors, engineers, particle physicists, xenobiologists, alien translators, droid mechanics, etc. Since you won’t be required to fly the spacecraft, test pilot experience isn’t necessary, but you’ll need to have the same physical health as the pilot astronaut. Well, are you going to sign up and become an astronaut? Where do you think your mission will go? Tell us in the comments below.

I have been in communication with the legal council at the Johnson Space Centre as recently as this morning, and her commanding officer Coronial Steve Lindsay, whose card I placed on the bench in front of you, came to Orlando last night and he is in the courtroom today. If the court has any questions with reference to her position at the Johnson Space Centre, it is our intent that once a reasonable bond is posted, that she will return to Houston and the Johnson Space Centre. They are quite supportive in this circumstance." NASA TV FILE - Houston, Texas 14. Nowak getting suited up for water survival training 15. Nowak hanging over the water then being dropped into water STORYLINE An American astronaut appeared in court on charges of attempting to kidnap a romantic rival in a bizarre plot in which she donned a disguise and wore nappies during her 900-mile (1,500 kilometre) drive so that she did not have to stop to urinate. US Navy Captain Lisa Nowak, 43, a robotics specialist who flew last July on a shuttle mission to the international space station, drove from her home in Houston, Texas, to Orlando International Airport, Florida, donned a disguise and was armed with a BB gun and pepper spray when she confronted Colleen Shipman, who she believed was romantically involved with Navy Commander William Oefelein. During the drive, she wore nappies, as astronauts do during launch and re-entry, so she would not have to stop to urinate. In court on Tuesday, the judge said Nowak could be released on US 15,500 dollars bond under the condition that she does not contact her alleged victim. She said "yes" when the judge asked her if she understood not to contact the woman. "It is our intent that once a reasonable bond is posted, that she will return to Houston and the Johnson Space Center," Nowak's attorney, Donald Lykkebak, told the court. "They are quite supportive in this circumstance," he said. Nowak, a married mother of three, stood in a jail uniform, with her head down as the hearing was under way. Along with the attempted kidnapping charge, she also faces charges of attempted vehicle burglary with battery, destruction of evidence and battery. Nowak and Oefelein, 41, were both first-time fliers during separate shuttle missions last year. They trained together but never flew together. Nowak told police that her relationship with Oefelein, who is unmarried, was "more than a working relationship but less than a romantic relationship," according to an arrest affidavit.

Ron is also a highly decorated fighter pilot, test pilot, explorer, entrepreneur and humanitarian who believes that appropriately designed and targeted social enterprise can solve many of the problems facing our world. Ron flew on both the US Space Shuttle and the Russian Soyuz spacecraft. He is also an aquanaut and participated in the joint NASA-NOAA, NEEMO-9 mission - an exploration research mission held in Aquarius, the world's only undersea research laboratory. During this mission, he and the crew spent 18 continuous days living and working on the ocean floor. Ron Garan's last NASA assignment was with the administration's Open Innovation Initiative to increase transparency, collaboration and innovation within government. In this capacity, Ron has been involved in many global mass collaboration and citizen science programs. Prior to retiring from the US government, Ron was on assignment with the US Agency for International Development (USAID). At USAID he led an effort called Unity Node to develop a universal, open source, collaborative platform to enable humanitarian organizations around the world to work together toward common goals and assisted USAID to establish an Applied Research for Development Program.

Ron has been effectively using these platforms to tell the success story of the US and International Space Programs and started an initiative called Fragile Oasis to using his "Orbital Perspective" to inspire people to improve life on Earth.

Manna also developed, under contract with a partner organization, the largest water treatment intervention conducted by a private organization -- a four-million person program operating in Kenya, completely funded by carbon credits. Ron represented Manna Energy Ltd as one of ten global innovators in the field of water purification during the 2009 Launch-Water forum (sponsored by NASA, US State Dept., USAID, and Nike) and is now a member of the Launch Council.

The most expensive web series ever at a cost of $170 BILLION! (Cost of the Apollo program in 2005 dollars.) If NASA stuck you on the moon in 1972, wouldn't YOU be pissed? Completely re-done in 720p HD since--much like Lawrence of Arabia--the square-ish shape of old TVs couldn't contain the majestic cinematography. (LA was winner of the Best Comedic Web Series Award at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival when it was still in Aspen.)

You don't actually need 20/20 vision to become one of NASA's astronauts. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO On Decemeber 14th, NASA will begin accepting applications for astronauts—the application will be available on the USA Jobs web site. The basic requirements to qualify for the position aren't as unattainable as some may believe. Some of the basic requirements to join NASA's elite astronaut corps include: having a bachelor's degree in engineering, biological science, physical science, or mathematics, plus 3 years of related professional experience, or at least 1,000 hours as pilot of a jet aircraft. There are currently 47 active astronauts in the space agency's corps. In a press release, NASA said, "The next class of astronauts may fly on any of four different U.S. vessels during their careers: the International Space Station, two commercial crew spacecraft currently in development by U.S. companies, and NASA’s Orion deep-space exploration vehicle." NASA expects to announce selected candidates in mid-2017. Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

World View has named retired NASA astronaut Ron Garan as Chief Pilot for robotic flight operations and upcoming human spaceflights via balloon. A highly decorated fighter pilot, test pilot and astronaut who traveled 71,075,867 miles in 2,842 orbits of Earth, Garan will be responsible for the safe accomplishment of all flight operations, including un-crewed robotic launches and passenger flights to the edge of space. Garan's experience with NASA launched him on a lifelong mission to share his vision that the impact of a new perspective on planet Earth could fundamentally transform humanity for the better. Now, Garan will have the opportunity to not only figuratively share that perspective with his audience, but to literally share it by carrying the next generation of citizen explorers to the edge of space for a perspective-shifting experience.
