I know I'm not who you want to hear from, but I'll share my opinion.

I don't think astronauts aim to become an "Astronaut" by itself. I think that they study multiple subjects that can be beneficial to a situation in Space AND Terra, as oppose to just "becoming an astronaut."

If you look at them, they don't really study fields that are solely for astronauts. They study fields that can be used and applied to multiple, broader fields of work.

It seems to me that they were chosen because they had a broad (yet still solid in all they studied) area of expertise.

Sorry if I stepped out of line, I simply thought I would share my opinion.

This question is for Jessica. I'm hoping to go to CalTech in the future. I sincerely hope that so can get an internship as the same NASA research center you got one at. I'm wanting to major in Physics and Astronomy in order to become an Astrophysicist. Do you think CalTech is the right place to do so? What tips do you have for me or anyone else wondering the same?

This question is for all of you. What do you think about the prospect of Mars colonization?
