Apollo 13 mars. Apollo 13 theme. Apollo 13 follows the ill-fated mission back in 1970 of three astronauts attempting to land on the moon. When an explosion on the space shuttle forces the astronauts to abort their mission (which initially causes disappointment, but ultimately sets off a chain reaction of problems for the astronauts) flight director Gene Kranz (Ed Harris) and his team of NASA boffins must try to navigate the pilots back to Earth using several risky and untried methods. br> My summary above does give a basic foundation for this film, but unfortunately a lot of what I describe above occurs in the second half of the film (which I'm prepared to admit was pretty engrossing. It's a shame really that the first half of the film isn't anywhere near as strong as the second half as it could have been a truly great film rather than being merely a good film. The build-up to the space mission was dull and padded; Howard feels the need to show some syrupy family dynamics and topical references such as Lovell's daughters being upset about the Beatles breaking up (which seemed to have just been thrown in there to remind folks that it was set in 1970 and to give the film some soapy slush. The training aspect before the space mission was dull and I've got to be honest that I did find the film a bit tough going in the first hour. but then. br> Howard must have had a big kick up the backside because the second half of the film was great. It has drama, tension and I really liked the way that everyone all chipped in together to try and get 3 of their best astronauts safely back to Earth. There is so much intricate planning in the second half that it becomes hard to keep up (and all of the geeky space talk will go over most people's heads) but the second half does contain everything that makes a good action/drama film and therefore for this portion of the film it gets two thumbs up. However. br> This is a narrative problem so I'm unsure who to blame here, but throughout the space mission we're led to believe that Swigert is the one who is responsible for the explosion on the shuttle and he is generally deemed as the 'bad guy. also due to the fact that he took Mattingley's place on the shuttle. Swigert is never really painted in a positive light and I was fully ready to hate him at the end, but then I found that the rug was pulled from under me when I learned that the explosion was caused due to a defect with the shuttle rather than being caused by human error. Huh? So Swigert did nothing wrong? Then why make him out to be the villain all along? I've not read Lovell's book so maybe this is explained there - was there beef between Lovell and Swigert or was this Ron Howard putting in a curveball twist? Either way it didn't sit well with me and I would have preferred to have been behind all 3 of the astronauts rather than 2 of them.
The energy that the film offers in the second half and the impressive cast and photography make this worth a look, but in my book this is far from being a perfect film.
Apollo 12. I'm the 666 comment. Hyperthermic chamber is incorrect. Hypothermic chamber is correct 27:15. Apollo 13 1995. It kind of shocks me to think that this event is as old to young people today as the second world war was to me in 1970.
Fortunately, my memory serves me well enough, still, to recall the events of the Apollo 13 mission, and the phrase that captured the entire event. Houston, we have a problem.
The extraordinary visual effects combined with the all-star-packed casting couldn't have been better; each performance, from Tom Hanks down through the ranks to the techs at Mission Control, and the 'spot-narration' voice over (in the form of news bulletins) by Walter Cronkite accurately captured the anxiety, character, enthusiasm and 'can-do' attitude of this 'gremlin plagued' mission.
If you lived these events then see it, it's sure to recall the times and places. But if this is history to you see it and know that "that's the way it was" at the very pinnacle, of the age of exploration.

Never mind reviewing the merits of a seven year old film with an already proven box office popularity. Instead, let us review only new things here. Viewers of APOLLO 13 - THE IMAX EXPERIENCE ( main film page) are being told and sold on the novelty of "The Imax Experience. " Inevitably, we face the question that is the curious trademark: "The Imax Experience. " What does it mean? Once, in Berlin, I drank in a hotel bar for as many hours as I was standing and finished the night with a bad doner kebab from a street vendor. The next morning after no sleep I went to see LEWIS & CLARK with a blinding headache and a swollen tongue. My seat was excellent. The same theater Stadium Sound and six-story images that were no doubt transporting some viewers to another time and place brought on sensory overload, and had me running through the back streets of Berlin where I was reintroduced to my old friend, der wienerschnitzel. I was unable to return to the theater. This was certainly a rare "Imax Experience" and not the sort the Imax Corporation has in mind for most of its customers. But it does point to the problems inherent in trying to define and trademark "experience. " It has been my experience that Stand Alone Theaters as architectural spaces are major contributors to the "Imax Experience. " Large Format Filmmakers (some using nothing patented by Imax) are partners in creating the "Imax Experience. " The theatergoer � hopefully, in most cases, not stone-blind and hung-over drunk - contributes to the "Imax Experience. " And importantly, technologies from Imax Corporation have played a crucial role in conjuring up the "Imax Experience. " So what exactly is this new/old film "APOLLO-13 - The Imax Experience? " For this viewer, it is an entertaining and fine looking movie full of images never intended for the Giant Screen. Not a single image in APOLLO 13 was conceived, composed or shot with a 70mm framework in mind. The film is a triumph for Imax's DMR process, it represents state of the art blow up technology. But you can't blow up a picture of your house cat and then call it a lion. Ron Howard has been quoted as saying, "I always wanted to make an Imax movie, who knew I already made one! " In claiming to have "accidentally" made a Large Format film, Ron Howard misunderstands what Large Format film is. APOLLO 13 has a few coincidental "Imax moments" - but they are anemic in comparison to authentic 15/70 moments. There is a scene in APOLLO 13 � THE IMAX EXPERIENCE where Tom Hanks jettisons a splashy constellation of urine across open space and the expanse of the Giant Screen. Another astronaut looks on and exclaims, "What a beautiful sight! " The Imax Corporation, once famously sensitive to preserving the pure, family nature of their brand is now calling this an "Imax Moment? " Visions of DMR-meets-Hollywood dollars make corporations do the darndest things. So again, what is a true "Large Format-Giant Screen-Big Movie-IMAX or Whatever Experience? " It is an experience that begins before the film is made. It begins when a filmmaker discovers an image that can only be recreated through 70mm photography. You can tell the story of wildebeest migration with Polaroid snapshots if you want to. But to understand what thundering wildebeests on the move feel like, you need to experience a film like AFRICA: THE SERENGHETTI. You could be standing with the pit crew at the Indie 500 and you still wouldn't know what it's like to look over Michael Andretti's shoulder as he pushes 200mph down the straightaway - for this, you need to go see SUPERSPEEDWAY. Scope, richness of color and clarity of image matter absolutely within a true Large Format moment - some things cannot be faked. The most interesting aspects of APOLLO 13 - THE IMAX EXPERIENCE have to do with proving and debunking some of the conjecture, theories and myths attached to live action drama on the Giant Screen. A few of the edits were uncomfortable to watch and there was the occasional close-up that had characters looking more colossal than humans should be allowed (I seat hopped for four different vantage points. ) But all in all, the dramatic sensibility of the film was only minimally affected by size increase and image deterioration. Story and suspense are involving enough to keep issues of image quality far from the minds of all but Large Format purists. The IMAX Corporation has created a new sort of middle ground with the DMR technology - you get a film that is arguably more than standard 35mm and definitely less than 70mm. The Imax Corporation may very well go-a-hunting for old and new Hollywood movies readymade for their DMR technology. APOLLO 13, TWISTER, TITANIC, BARBARELLA (we hope) and the latest installments of STAR WARS and STAR TREK all have what it takes to impersonate an "Imax" movie. This will of course lead to a great deal of hand wringing on the part of Large Format purists and filmmakers. Will the public perception of Large Format films be cheapened/confused? Will authentic 70mm films be squeezed out of the marketplace by Hollywood marketed DMR films? Here is another question: Which has a greater cheapening/confusing effect on Large Format audiences, the invasion of Hollywood blow-ups or the large number of mediocre and uninspired authentic Large Format films now playing on the Giant Screen? And now, some wild conjecture... Excepting the occasional art house, the only place in the world to go and see a theatrical showing of a documentary film is a Giant Screen theater. Museum film bookers and audiences will never confuse APOLLO 13 with SOLARMAX or THE HUMAN BODY - extinction of the traditional Big Movie seems unlikely. If Hollywood blow-ups claim a permanent share of the Giant Screen pie, perhaps only the best and most innovative (3-D) Large Format films will survive the increased competition for multiplex LF theater bookings. The Large Format moviegoer will benefit from this state of affairs and the production side of the Large Format industry will suffer - except for those clever technicians behind the Imax DMR process. The proprietary DMR technology is presumably not akin to unraveling the human genome, and other labs/companies will hopefully enter the blow-up market and prevent the Imax Corporation from continuing to define and thereby own the Giant Screen Experience. I would estimate that only about 25% of the images in even the very best Large Format films need to be photographed for 70mm presentation. Maybe we are entering a new era of Hybrid Large Format filmmaking - where DMR type technologies, 70mm cinematography, good editing/matching, good directing and well chosen subject matter will combine to create a new Large Format language that kills off the legendary dragon of Large Format limitations. As always, the market and Imax Corp. 's relentless self-interest will bear things out... Agree or Disagree? Click here to weigh in with your opinion!

Apollo 13 movie clips. Critics Consensus In recreating the troubled space mission, Apollo 13 pulls no punches: it's a masterfully told drama from director Ron Howard, bolstered by an ensemble of solid performances. 95% TOMATOMETER Total Count: 88 87% Audience Score User Ratings: 432, 840 Apollo 13 Ratings & Reviews Explanation Apollo 13 Photos Movie Info "Houston, we have a problem. " Those words were immortalized during the tense days of the Apollo 13 lunar mission crisis in 1970, events recreated in this epic historical drama from Ron Howard. Astronaut Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks) leads command module pilot Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon) and lunar module driver Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) on what is slated as NASA's third lunar landing mission. All goes smoothly until the craft is halfway through its mission, when an exploding oxygen tank threatens the crew's oxygen and power supplies. As the courageous astronauts face the dilemma of either suffocating or freezing to death, Mattingly and Mission Control leader Gene Kranz (Ed Harris) struggle to find a way to bring the crew back home, all the while knowing that the spacemen face probable death once the battered ship reenters the Earth's atmosphere. The film received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic critical response and a Best Picture nomination, but lost that Oscar to another (very different) historical epic, Mel Gibson's Braveheart. In 2002, the movie was released in IMAX theaters as Apollo 13: The IMAX Experience, with a pared-down running time of 116 minutes in order to meet the technical requirements of the large-screen format. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi Rating: PG (language and emotional intensity) Genre: Directed By: Written By: In Theaters: Jun 30, 1995 wide On Disc/Streaming: Sep 7, 2004 Runtime: 140 minutes Studio: Universal Pictures Cast News & Interviews for Apollo 13 Critic Reviews for Apollo 13 Audience Reviews for Apollo 13 Apollo 13 Quotes Movie & TV guides.

Apollo 13 cast. Apollo 13 quotes. What was one example of a larger misconception portrayed by Gravity that stood out to you the most? The scene where Bullock lets go of Clooney's hand, and he flies away. They were both stopped! He would not have flown off! Thank you for doing this, has there ever been a "near disaster" moment during your time in space? Yes, the Soyuz autopilot failed and tried to crash us into ISS! We took manual control and got the vehicle stopped 50 meters from the station... What's the difference between American and Russian suits? Like differences in safety, comfort, utility etc? American suit is more flexible, better visibility, but more complex logistically, and in getting prepared to go outside. Russian suit is one size fits all, easy to prepare and go EVA, but more stiff and difficult to work in. Wow... thank you for doing this! What's the most memorable experience or event from your missions? Let's see, most memorable moment was during a spacewalk. I was on my third shuttle mission and I was being moved by the robotic arm from one part of the space station to another, and for several moments I could only see the earth, I was facing straight down at the earth, and I felt like a satellite flying over. I was watching the continents and clouds roll by and it was just very surreal. When in space, how often does a hallucinatory George Clooney visit you to help out? I'm still waiting! Did you have any certain protocol to follow if you were contacted by any alien lifeforms whilst you were in space? If so, what was it? No, and if we had, I'm sure we would have forgotten them! Hi Dr. Chiao, I was your student back when you taught public policy at LSU. Truly an honor to have you in that class. Anyways, just want to know if you have experienced seeing cosmic rays while in space and how did it feel like? (e. g., did you see it with closed eyes? ). Also, can it explain UFO sightings that are common with astronauts? When a particle hits your retina, you see a bright flash. It doesn't happen that often, but it is bright enough to see when in the light, with your eyes open too! Many astronauts have seen odd things in space, but in all the cases I know if, they have all been explained. Great to hear from you, glad you liked the LSU class!! Astronauts train in giant swimming pools, right? How would you compare the weightlessness feel of a pool to actually being in space? Feel is totally different, but it lets you practice all the things you need to do, in 3D. Great procedures training, but doesn't at all mimic the feel! Is being in space bitchin' or what? Absolutely, yes! You sound like you're from my era! Today, can the USOS and ROS of the ISS orbit independently of each other in current configurations? No, they are attached and they always have been so they cannot separate and orbit independently. Why is there a long delay in the NAUKA module, which was suppose to have been up even before the end of the last decade, and why is there a need for the OKA T free flying platform? I believe that you're discussing the Russian Science module? I don't know the reason for the delay, but I suspect it has to do with events in Russia, because it is a Russian module. I'm not familiar with the OKA T platform. How would the ISS be deorbited upon reaching its full utilization age in 2024 or 2028? Is there a posible cooperation utilizing the SLS/ORION/ARRM together with the Russian OPSEK for a BEO missions to Mars? The answer is: we don't yet have a deorbit plan. But I believe it makes sense that it would be using the onboard SM engines, possibly in conjunction with a Progress module. The answer is that a version of the BA 330 will be launched to the ISS as a test but will not replace any of the current modules. Thanks for doing this! What was the hardest thing to get used to after arriving back on earth? You are very dizzy, because your brain has forgotten how to interpret the signals coming from your balance systems. It takes several days to a few weeks before it clears up! So it's like you become a baby again? Kind of, even the callouses come off of your feet! You have baby feet again after a long mission. even the callouses come off of your feet. You're not using your feet in space, so the skin sloughs off and doesn't get tough again! Wow. What's the explanation for this? Of course, walking on Earth toughens them back up. Hello Leroy! Thank you for doing this Ama. I'm currently studying Physics and nanotechology. Many of the courses are nanotechnology, solidstate physics, magnetism and quantum mechanics etc. My issue is that I would very much like to work at ESA / NASA and I don't know if any of the fields i'm currently studying are relevant for a job there? I am thinking about changing program and joining the Spacetechnology program where the courses range from planetary physics to spacecraft instrumentation systems. Which one of those do you think would yield the greatest chance of getting a job at ESA / NASA? Also What do I have to do to enhance my chances of becoming an astronaut / which way in life would ”be better” so to speak? Have a nice ama:) Wow, the short answer is that you should stay in whatever interests you the most, because NASA selects people from a lot of different backgrounds, and that doesn't mean you have to study aerospace engineering or anything like that, and so you should not change your major because you think it will improve your NASA chances. I think the best thing you can do is to do well in whatever field you choose, because the most important things are your references and letters of recommendation. Hi Leroy! What's the most amazing thing you saw while on your missions, was there any specific moment where you were just completely taken aback? My first look at the Earth's limb (horizon). The sunlight makes the atmosphere glow bright bands of blue! I was totally taken aback. What about being in space surprised you the most? What surprised me the most the first time I got up there, the first time I got up into orbit, and the sunlight going through the atmosphere caused the horizon to glow all these beautiful bright bands of fluorescent blue. That usually does not show up on photographs because it gets washed out by sunlight reflecting through the clouds. It's hard to capture in pictures, you can see it, but it's not as bright as when you see it with your own eyes. Great AMA you are doing here! Are there any odd effects from watching the sunrise 15 times per day for 6 months? Surprisingly, you get used to it! Thanks for doing this AMA! Do you astronauts have your own version of the "mile high club? " If we did, don't you think it would have leaked out? How would a guy keep that secret?? NASA = Never A Straight Answer. I thought it was! The answer is, I don't think it's happened, because we would all have heard about it! Do you think aliens are observing us? I firmly believe there is life elsewhere in the universe, but I am skeptical that we have been visited! Can you describe what it's like to look down on earth from space? Magical. The Earth looks "painted" sometimes, like it's not real! Did time feel like it took longer while in space? Time seems to pass the same as on Earth. That is, if you are doing something really cool, it goes by quickly. More mundane tasks seem to make time drag on. How do bathrooms work on space shuttles? Bathrooms, or more specifically toilets, are designed to use airflow to get things where they are supposed to go. Gravity works better. By international agreement, you clean up your own mess! Between you (the Americans) and the Russians, were there any communication problems that resulted in unintended results? Also, what were they like to work with? Once I got to know them, I loved the Russians. I loved learning the language, the culture, the history, the positives and the negatives. We never had a serious communication problem. I realized early on that learning Russian was going to be the most important part of my training. Thanks so much for doing this AMA, Mr. Chiao! What is your favorite freeze-dried food? Least favorite? Also, what was the hardest normal, everyday task to complete whilst in zero gravity? Favorite freeze dried food was Russian mashed potatoes with onions! Hardest normal day task was using the bathroom, as you might guess! When you watch television shows or movies about space travel, does anything ever stand out as an inconsistency, or factual error? Yes, I mean, there are technical inaccuracies in most space movies and space shows. Some they really tried to get correct, like Apollo 13, but some of the classic inaccuracies - the physics are almost always wrong, in Star Wars or Gravity there are depictions that are incorrect. I have to take a step back and realize that it's a movie, it's trying to be entertainment and not be a documentary. Congrats on making it to being an Astronaut! It's a very gnarly process! Did you ever have any anxiety up there? Like... "Holy shit... I'm not on earth, oh God, WHAT IF WE JUST FLOAT AWAY?! " I feel like that would be really heavy. Thanks for all your work and rock on. I wouldn't call it anxiety, but during spacewalks, you are hyper aware of what you are doing. Because, the very worst thing to have happen, would be to "fall off" of the station! What is your favorite science fiction novel? 2001: A Space Odyssey How heavy is the suit you wear? The suit is about 350 pounds. Fortunately we're weightless up there. That includes the backpack and the backpack contains the systems, O2 packs, cooling systems, that you need up there. The inertia must make it feel different as you climb around, no? Yes, you move slowly, but deliberately. If you got invited to fly on the first manned SpaceX mission. Would you jump on the opportunity and why? It may surprise you that I wouldn't go, unless offered some big incentive. The reason is that I've been in orbit for almost 230 days. If I had never gone before, of course I would jump at the chance! May sounds strange, but one thinks more about the risk/reward with each successive flight. Just like a baby when it starts walking! Thanks for the nice response, Doc! Can I call you Doc? I feel like I can call you Doc. Sure! What daily routine is the hardest to get used to once you arrive back on earth? Walking. Getting your balance back is the first, hardest thing! What do you think of the movie Gravity? Enjoyed it! I had to tell myself that it was entertainment, and not try to look for technical errors, although there were some big technical inaccuracies! Would you mind expanding on that for us? What were the three most glaring inaccuracies that jumped out at you? The idea of changing orbital planes with an MMU, or with any existing spacecraft is ludicrous. No way you have nearly enough fuel! Thanks for the reply, you're being super active on this AMA and I assure you we all appreciate the hell out of it! So judging by your bio, you're basically George Clooney's character from the movie, does that mean you have a lot of funny stories which you entertained the ISS crew with during your stint as commander? :) Ha ha! I'd like to think I'm a little like Clooney! Good memories of being ISS CDR! What type of physical training did you partake in that one might find surprising? Maybe the most surprising thing is that there is no formal physical training program! Of course we are expected to keep ourselves in good shape, and they provide us with a gym and trainers if we would like to use them to exercise (and they expect us to exercise and stay in shape) but there's no formal program. If you were portrayed in a movie, who would you want Hollywood to cast as you? Ooh wow that's a good one! How about John Cho? And he plays Sulu in Star Trek. Sure, I'm ready to talk gravity. What do you want to know? :) Does being in space for 6+ months ever get boring? The answer is: it doesn't get boring, but after about four months, I was thinking I wouldn't mind going home. Happy AMA! Not boring, but after 4 months, I thought "I wouldn't mind going back home now! " At which point in your life did you decide you would like to be an astronaut? Oh, I wanted to be an astronaut since I was an 8 year old kid watching the first Apollo moon landing! How did you get to be an astronaut? Did you start off in the military? No, the astronaut office is about half military, half civilian. I was a research engineer when I applied. Can you talk more about those lights you saw in 2005? Do you believe in extraterrestrial and if you do, do you think they have/will visit earth? The lights were explained! You can watch the Science Channel tonight, I believe at 10:00 to see it all. I do believe in life elsewhere in the universe, but I don't think we've found each other yet. I am skeptical that Earth has been visited. Hello Leroy Chiao, thank you for doing an AMA. I am a biochemistry student in health and am very curious (if it's not too personal) how your health is doing, regarding bone strength? What was it like to take your forst step after landing on earth again? The exercise program works great. We exercise two hours per day. My health is fine, I didn't lose any measurable bone! The internet famous video of some object moving away quickly, then a few seconds later a beam of light shooting right through where it was, wtf? Why are there so many instances of public broadcasting of mission control/station cutting out immediately after an astronaut says they see something strange? What the hell is that giant tower thing on the moon, and why hasn't nasa taken better pictures of it? Strictly speaking, UFO's are unidentified. Doesn't mean they are aliens! Most are explained later and correlated with something else. What was your most incredible experience in space and why? Doing spacewalks and helping to build the ISS. Really surreal experiences! What is your favourite thing to do while in space? Mostly look at the Earth. Different parts are so different, yet all are beautiful in their own ways. Hi Leroy! what are the pro's and con's of being in space? Pros are that it's cool, good work gets done there that helps make life better here on Earth! Cons are that you really miss your loved ones during long flights. What's the feeling you get when you've landed and you're weaker than when you went to space, is it like having a dead leg? Never had a dead leg, but... You do feel weaker! Do you think time is linear or cyclical? Both? Which way is 'up' when you're in space? There is no real up or down in space! You can make the directions whatever you like. It's kind of fun changing. Hi, and thanks for doing an AMA! Do astronauts ever play pranks on each other in the ISS? We never really did, we did enjoy some good laughs though! I'm sure there are a few pranks played! :) Hello Mr. Chiao, what are the thought that came to your mind, while you were out of the station for a spacewalk? Did you always want to become an astronaut? Spacewalking is surreal. I thought "am I really doing this, or is this a dream? " Thanks for doing this. What went through your head at the most risky moments of the mission? You surely were busy enough, but i guess knowing there had been disasters you knew death was a real possibility. How did your family deal with that? I was single for most of my flying career, so it was relatively easy. It's easy to risk your own life for doing something you love, but hard to watch a loved on being put at risk. Hello Leroy! Thanks for doing this AMA, I have some questions. 1: How did it "feel" like when you got in space? (How does microgravity feel like? ) 2: Since you were on the space shuttle, would you rather be on the shuttle or the ISS and why? 3: What was your favorite thing about space and what was your favorite thing to do in space? Floating is weird, feels a bit like being in a pool. ISS is bigger, but I miss Space Shuttle! Favorite was looking back at the beautiful Earth. What was your favorite part of astronaut boot camp? Fortunately, no boot camp, but a one year training program. We are expected to exercise and keep ourselves in shape though. Some are better at it than others, as you can see from our pictures! What was your best experience while in space or while training to go to space? Thanks! Best experience was during a spacewalk. I was on the robotic arm, and for several moments, could only see the Earth. I felt like a satellite, watching the continents and clouds roll by underneath! Thanks for doing this! What's the one thing you miss the most about being in space? The view of the beautiful Earth! Space has always fascinated me and I have always wondered what daily activity becomes significantly more difficult while in orbit? All little things! Keeping things organized, not losing things, clipping your fingernails, brushing your teeth... Hello Leroy. (: thanks for doing this AMA. It's pretty awesome of you. Anyway I have two big questions. I did see Gravity, and wrote a review on, and an Op-Ed on! Have you seen the movie Gravity? If so, how do you feel about the movie Gravity? As someone who loves space but couldn't possibly imagine myself going there, it honestly seemed like a really surreal movie; almost like that couldn't ever POSSIBLY happen. I enjoyed the movie. It was technically inaccurate in key places, but they did a nice job of creating the right look and feel of space and doing spacewalks. My second cluster of question is what's the worst situation you've had to deal with? What's the most uncomfortable thing about space? How did you spend your vacation time? The most dangerous situation I've been in during spaceflight, was when we were coming in to dock to the ISS. We had a malfunction in the autopilot, and we had to take over manually. We nearly collided with the station due to this problem. It was pretty dangerous. How did you become an astronaut? What kind of advice can you offer to young people who hope to go to space? The advice I can give people who want to become astronauts is to study something that interests you that also qualifies you to apply to be an astronaut. For example, I studied engineering because I liked it, but it also qualified me to send in an application to become an astronaut. I was selected in January of 1990, and that was having applied one year before, so I put an application in, about seven months later I got a call from NASA to fly out to Houston to interview, and then four months later I got the call I had been selected. Did you always want to be an astronaut? this is so cool. Yes, since I watched the Apollo 11 Moon landing when I was 8! On Earth we still have wars, hunger, poverty, lack of education etc etc... Do you think we are ready for colonizing other planets? Should not we use all resources available to make our planet better place than for exploring bunch of (super cool, if you ask me) things out there? NASA only gets about 0. 5% of the federal budget, so we get a lot out of that tiny amount! Adding it to social program wouldn't make a noticeable difference. Has the viral success of Chris Hadfield and the attention it has garnered for the ISS put the pressure on fellow astronauts to deliver? What sort of conversation do you want astronauts to foster down here among 'Millenials' and STEM students? I think Chris has helped raise awareness of what we are doing in space, and that's a good thing! It is good to inspire young people and show them the cool things we are doing in space. That is part of my mission too! What were the first moments like when you left Earth for the first time? Very dizzy, hard to walk! Have you seen Apollo 18, and if so, did it put a different feeling on about being in space? I unfortunately didn't get to see it! Should I?? You should! Puts a different, yet horror effect, on space. Ok, it's on the list! How do you become and astronaut, how much training is involved with it. Also what is space like, i really would find interesting what you felt like up there. You apply to NASA. You need at least a bachelor level degree in science or engineering to qualify. Space is very cool, the view is the best part. The IMAX movie, and even Gravity give you a pretty good idea!
