    This is the space agency that doesn't currently have any manned spacecraft, right? :scool:

    This is the spaceship they (potential astronauts) will travel in.

    NASA's new spaceship.

    Three different manned orbital spacecraft are being developed by Boeing, Lockheed, and SpaceX - progress is slow due to limited US Government funding. And of course there are a couple of private sub-orbital manned "spacecraft" in development by Virgin and Blue Origin.

    I still dream of being an astronaut one day, even though there's next to zero chance it ever will. I just hope to live long enough to experience commercial space tourism.

    As for the Patriots, *ppppfffffffft raspberry* they can go kiss my surreptitiously deflated footballs as far as I'm concerned.

    I just want my moon base and martian colony. Pretty sure I was promised this as a kid in the eighties. Also Thundercats, because.

    I have a 37% chance according to the test, and I guessed on more than 50% of the questions. According to my stats, I have 90% personality match and 0% educational match. I also have 0% abstract reasoning / IQ. That's the story of my life. ;)

    Inspired by cookderosa went ahead and took the test. 59% Not bad I guess. My 2 worst categories were personality (39%) and education (0%). I mean, who knew astronauts needed math or engineering? :emoji_face_palm:

    In Project Mercury, NASA had astronauts long before they had a workable spacecraft for them to fly. In fact, they were struggling to get the Atlas ready for spaceflight when the Russians put Gagarin into orbit. Because of this, NASA had to fall back on the Redstone rocket, requiring both Shepard and Grissom to take sub-orbital, ballistic flights. It wasn't until the third Mercury mission--with Glenn--that they had the Atlas ready to send him into orbit.

    Again, they selected and trained astronauts before having a spacecraft for them to fly.

    That's a fair point. I guess I just think it's a shame that there's a decade long gap where the U.S. can't put its own astronauts into space when by comparison the military gets so much funding that they lose trillions of dollars and it's not even a scandal. For that much we deserve a moon base or an O'Neill cylinder for an orbital space city or something.
