Gig103: Subby, did you read a different article than the one I read? I didn't see any list of specific tests, just "a variety of psychological reasons".In fact, "Barrett couldn't speak freely" about tests.
TsarTom: Ftfa: Slack said she couldn't describe the specific exercises, for security reasons.***Barrett couldn't speak freely about whether the selection process involves giving the applicants stress tests or putting them in challenging situations***"Sometimes we look at [our international partners] with envy at some of the things they get to do that we don't get to do," Slack said, but did not give any examples.Wow. I'm actually pretty sure I know less then I did before I started reading the article.It's like it took information *out* of my brain somehow.
abominare: the population really couldn't care less about the pursuit.
Mad_Radhu: Have you ever found yourself wearing a diaper to more easily drive across several states to kidnap and torture a romantic rival?
way south: Question 1: Are you willing to sit in this thing?
LograyX: It's your birthday.Someone gives you a calfskin wallet.How do you react?
ArkPanda: I thought they put a turtle on its back to see how you respond.
Gig103: way south: Question 1: Are you willing to sit in this thing?For fourteen days, no less. I do not envy Jim Lovell -- first he draws that duty, and then ends up being commander of Apollo 13.
way south: More than a few of the Apollo crews also had Gemini time, and more than a few missions went awry.If I recall it almost killed Neil armstrong (who was almost killed later by the LLRV test rig, and (notably) was almost killed by an X-15 prior in his career).This was that magic time at NASA when rockets were developing faster than our understanding of spaceflight.
way south: [img.fark.net image 850x569]Question 1: Are you willing to sit in this thing?/Answer yes and we know you're crazy./But you're our kind of crazy.
