Astronaut Dreams Dashed

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

Yesterday NASA began accepting job applications for becoming an Astronaut. So going through the requirements, bachelor degree in engineering, I got that. Vision correctable to 20/20, I got that. Height between 5 foot 2, and 6 foot 3, what the hell. I’m too TALL to be an astronaut.


I knew I shouldn’t have drank all that milk as a kid. Maybe I can fib on my application say I’m 6 foot 3, and just slouch and go barefoot when I go for the interview.

For those people who are the “right” height for NASA, here is the job application Job Application.

When you get to space, look for me from orbit. I’ll be the tall speck staring at the stars.
