2/16    Are military astronauts really former military officers?
        \_ I think they are current military officers.
           \_ Yes, they are currently in the military. Not all astronauts are,
              of course.
        \_ Just go to the Johnson SC website for astronaut bios.
           \_ For the lazy: http://www.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/index.html
              They have cosmonauts as well!
        \_ Though the nominee to head NASA is already retired AF and still
           an astronaut (though a "management" astroanut)

12/5    Romney is right after all -- our military does need more horses and
        bayonets!  http://www.csua.org/u/y3j  Romney for 2012!
        \_ I'd never considered Romney's campaign as an ad for Revolution,
           but I guess that makes as much sense anything else.
        \_ The tax cut removal is ill timed.

5/9     If U.S. doesn't do assissination, then what do you call
        Operation Neptune Spear aka "Mission Kill Bin Laden"?
        \_ I think theoretically the difference is that the goal of one is
           "kill him/her", while the goal of the other is "capture him/her,

Astronaut Information Welcome to the astronaut biographies home page, providing biographical in formation on the members of the space flight crews and candidates for fu ture missions in NASA's space flight program. The links above will dire ct you to biographical information on the astronauts. The term "astronaut" derives from the Greek words meaning "space sailor," and refers to all who have been launched as crew members aboard NASA sp acecraft bound for orbit and beyond. Since the inception of NASA's human space flight program, we have also maintained the term "astronaut" as t he title for those selected to join the NASA corps of astronauts who mak e "space sailing" their career profession. The term "cosmonaut" refers to those space sailors who are members of the Russian space program. The crew of each launched spacecraft is made up of astronauts or cosmonau ts drawn from the various categories described in these pages. The crew assignments and duties of commander, pilot, Space Shuttle mission specia list, or International Space Station flight engineer are drawn from the NASA professional career astronauts. A special category of astronauts t ypically titled "payload specialist" refers to individuals selected and trained by commercial or research organizations for flights of a specifi c payload on a space flight mission. At the present time, these payload specialists may be cosmonauts or astronauts designated by the internati onal partners, individuals selected by the research community, or a comp any or consortia flying a commercial payload aboard the spacecraft.
