HOUSTON, TX – Officials with NASA have introduce their eight new astronaut candidates at the Johnson Space Center in Houston on Tuesday.
It was, for all intents and purposes, the last time the public will see the group for the next two years as they’ll be traveling the globe for technical training activities and visiting different space stations around the world.
They did take time to share some of their personal stories, which was cool.
The eight candidates were picked from the largest pool of applications NASA has ever had; more than 6,000 people applied. Their mission, when they really do depart from planet Earth, is expected to, “…push the boundaries of exploration and travel to new destinations in the solar system.”
Can you imagine what a Buzz you’d get traveling to ‘infinity and beyond?
