We’re NASA’s Newest Astronauts! Ask us anything.
UPDATE: Our time has come to an end. Thanks for all the great questions! Follow along as we start training in August by following @NASA_Astronauts on Twitter.
We were just selected as members of NASA’s 2017 Astronaut Class! After completing two years of training, we could be assigned to missions performing research on the International Space Station, launching from American soil on spacecraft built by commercial companies, and launching on deep space missions on NASA’s new Orion spacecraft and Space Launch System rocket.
