This Is What Real Astronaut Training Looks Like

NASA often likes to toy with the public’s perception of space travel by allowing civilians to experience the process of becoming an astronaut. Most recently they took on Brent Rose of WIRED magazine to give him a crash course in spaceman training. It’s important to note that in order to become an astronaut, you first need a four-year science degree. On this particular occasion it was waived and Rose found himself at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.
