Now What? Space Science!

Well, I'm out of the running. No, I haven't heard officially (which makes me think that something may have happened to my application... you'd think I'd get some sort of official rejection), but I'm pretty sure I missed out this time around. There's always next time.

In the meantime, I've undertaken a new project that will (undoubtedly) be infinitely more entertaining than this blog. I call it "The Space Science Podcast." I've decided to produce it in seasons, much like a television show sans video. The first season has a working title of: "Learn Astrodynamics Without That Pesky Math Part." I hope you find it educational and enjoyable! I'm working on some of the administrative portions right now and hope to have the first episode out in a few weeks... if not sooner!

So What's the Deal?

What, precisely, is the deal? *shrug* I don't know. Here are the facts:

  1. I have in my possession a postcard from NASA that reads, "We have received your application for the Astronaut Candidate Program. You will be notified of any decisions concerning your applications."

  2. The timeline indicates that we're ending the point where potential candidates are notified and interviewed.

  3. I have not yet been notified.

It would be nice to know, one way or the other, but I guess I'll just wait it out. Perhaps, however, I'll give ol' NASA a call and see if my application has fallen through some cracks.
