Have Spacesuit, Will Travel

NASA has started recruiting for the next class of astronauts, and will be accepting applications from December 14, 2015 to mid-February 2016. Candidates will be announced in 2017, people, so start studying!

I’d like to take this opportunity to share my qualifications for becoming a member of the next class of astronauts, and to throw my hat in the ring.

  • I’m nearly an orange belt in my martial arts class, so clearly my physical fitness cannot be questioned.
  • I took AP Physics in high school.
  • I have watched Apollo 13 at least 30 times, and have included theoretical space travel in my study by perusing many historical documents such as Star Trek, Stargate SG-1, and Farscape.
  • I once built a robot costume. An actual robot can’t be that much more complicated.
  • I attended Space Academy in Huntsville, Alabama when I was in eighth grade and totally aced the rocket-building portion.
  • I already have a Twitter account.
  • I really, really, really, REALLY want to go to space.

How about you guys? What are your qualifications for becoming an astronaut?
