Today is the anniversary of the day man first walked on the moon in 1969! In honor of that, Mom gave me an astronaut Bear. Of course it got me to thinking how cool it must be to be an astronaut. So I looked into what it would take to become one. Well, I am a U.S. Citizen and I think I would do OK on a physical exam (maybe I need to diet a little more.). I would need to go to college and study math or science. I like both those subjects. Three years of experience - or get a doctorate. I would do the latter. Then 1000 hours of flying-- how fun would that be! The only problem is that I don't meet the height requirements. You have to be at least 64" tall. Bummer.
