program in a related science, technology, engineering or math field;
• A completed doctor of medicine or doctor of osteopathic medicine degree;
• Completion (or current enrollment that will result in completion by June 2021) of a
nationally recognized test pilot school program.

Candidates also must have at least two years of related, progressively responsible professional experience, or at least 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft. Astronaut candidates must pass the NASA long-duration spaceflight physical.

  78. Shiva Reddy UwU

    On 11th January 2019, I Learnt that I was colorblind..
    I was soo determined to be an astronaut since my childhood.
    There were times that I simply cried thinking about space, when everyone else in my family was sleeping. Becoming an astronaut itself was a task next to impossible. But.. Now.. Colorblind.. Ok I know even if I was not colorblind, I may not be smart, I may not be intelligent, but I don’t care just.. Space..
    I learnt that only 1 person out 7 Billion people became an astronaut who is a color blind, but atleast he was born in USA.
    Not me.. Iam born in India, struggling with the overwhelming competition.
    Iam depressed, disappointed and frustrated.
    But, as Elon Musk said “I don’t ever give up”
    Edit : Yes, Iam a colorblind and short-sighted. Idk, what I will do if I don’t become one, but I will just stop caring about my insignificant life, and just let time take over.
    Apologies for bad English. English is my 4th Language sorry.

  79. Justina Ekwonye
