NASA astronaut class of 2013

NASA has announced its newest astronaut selection.

  • Josh A. Cassada, Ph. D.
  • Victor J. Glover, Lt. Commander, U.S. Navy
  • Tyler N. Hague, Lt. Colonel, U.S. Air Force
  • Christina M. Hammock
  • Nicole Aunapu Mann, Major, U.S. Marine Corps
  • Anne C. McClain, Major, U.S. Army
  • Jessica U. Meir, Ph.D.
  • Andrew R. Morgan, M.D., Major, U.S. Army

Of paticular interest to the proprietor of this website, Hague is the 36th NASA astronaut to be educated at MIT. I believe that MIT is #3 in the number of its alumni who have become NASA astronauts, after the US Naval Academy and US Air Force Academy (Hague also being an alumnus of the latter).
