Tha Astronaut Training Process tp Prepare for LaunchOct. 16 2010
- Published on Amazon.com
I am truly amazed at what a contemporary Astronaut has to learn and know. Bioethics! Wow! This training must take years. Today's Astronaut has to know everything about his space craft and how to fix things that go amiss. Their lives depend on this knowledge. They need the knowledge for at least three degrees. This training is tough. I know several guys who applied and were not accepted. It was their eyesight. They were so disappointed.
This training has a good reason: the more you know, the safer you are. I worked on Apollo and compared to this, our Astronauts did not have much training because there were so many things we didn't know. Our Apollo Astronauts really paved the way. I applaud this book. Not only is it interesting, it has great information.
