5) Professional astronauts go through vigorous training and have to overcome many physical obstacles to travel through space and be employed by NASA. Becoming an astronaut is an intense process that requires a huge amount of stamina and endurance. NASA is constantly looking for new astronauts and usually selects between 15 to 25 applicants every two years. Currently there is no age limit, but there is a flight examination that a candidate must pass.

6) All candidates must have a bachelors of science from an accredited institution and have atleast 1,000 flight hours of pilot in command time. They must pass a physical exam and have perfect eye sight. There are different requirements for each position, but they all require the applicant to be in top physical health to withstand the stresses of space flight.

7) What astronauts do in space is actually risking their own lives to give us more knowledge and awareness of space. Exploration and research of space would not be possible without the bravery of the men and women who take up this monumental task.

1) There are some astronauts that are mission specialists who fly or navigate the space shuttle. To be more specific they are pilots. Others are payload specialist who work with the mission equipment that is launched into space, for example completing experiments or repairing parts of satellites. In brief,an astronaut's mission's are separated into four areas: supply, repair, assembly and research, not to mention self care.

2) Often astronauts repair and maintain orbiting satellites. They sometimes pull a satellite into there cargo bay to repair the satellite or they will spacewalk to it in their spacesuits. On the space station there is always something to do, the astronauts usually spend there time keeping the ISS clean and tidy by cleaning up the inside and out.

3) The weightless environment requires astronauts to dedicate a certain amount of time to exercising every day. Exercise is such an important part of the job, a duty that cannot be forgotten. Space astronauts that are seldomly in space for more than two weeks at any time exercise half an hour a day. But astronauts on the ISS must exercise two hours a day to stay in shape.

1) The role of man in space has changed from competition to cooperation. The mindset of "who does it first" has transformed to "how can we improve life". This transformation allows for space agencies to run smoother and cheaper without having to worry about the pressures of competition.
