I've been approached to do some things with astronauts and the preparation that astronauts go through.
Welcome to President Bush, Mrs. Bush, and my fellow astronauts.
So most astronauts getting ready to lift off are excited and very anxious and worried about that explosion - because if something goes wrong in the first seconds of launch, there's not very much you can do.
No, I think most astronauts recognize that the space shuttle program is very high-risk, and are prepared for accidents.
The astronauts who came in with me in my astronaut class - my class had 29 men and 6 women - those men were all very used to working with women.
So most astronauts are astronauts for a couple of years before they are assigned to a flight.
The pressure suit helps if something goes wrong during launch or re-entry - astronauts have a way to parachute off the shuttle. The suits protect you from loss of pressure in case of emergency.
On a standard space shuttle crew, two of the astronauts have a test pilot background - the commander and the pilot.
Different astronauts sleep in different ways.
Some astronauts sleep in sort of beds - compartments that you can open up and crawl into and then close up, almost like a little bedroom.
The food isn't too bad. It's very different from the food that the astronauts ate in the very early days of the space program.
While I'm not a celebrity, it's such a weird concept that society has cooked up for us. Astronauts and teachers are much more amazing than actors.
Before we had airplanes and astronauts, we really thought that there was an actual place beyond the clouds, somewhere over the rainbow. There was an actual place, and we could go above the clouds and find it.there.
I don't know any astronauts. There are a lot of people who say they want to be comedians.
The successful golfers - they're like astronauts or pilots. They have that demeanor that they can focus and stay within that one moment and nothing distracts them. That's not me.
Astronauts have been stuck in low-Earth orbit, boldly going nowhere. American attempts to kick-start a new phase of lunar exploration have stalled amid the realisation that NASA's budget is too small for the job.

Since there always has to be a certain number of astronauts manning the station at all times, one of the main aspects of the mission was to transport a new team to the station and bring back some members of the previous team back to Earth.
I think that witnessing ecological problems visible from space is one of the new and essential roles of astronauts.
Astronauts are very professional and when they're preparing for launch, they prepare for it as the most serious endeavor of our lives.

I had done everything I could do as an astronaut, and we have a long line of inexperienced astronauts waiting for their first missions, and so my role really should be to step aside and help them prepare for their missions, rather than to try to get another mission.
I think it's good to have competition. Now we have a third country that can launch astronauts, so it's good for all of us. It makes us a little bit more competitive and wanting to be the leader.
I'm Chinese-American, of course, and so it's very interesting to see China actually launch their own astronauts, becoming the third nation, following the United States and Russia, to do so.
The moment we scrumptious find love astronauts, life as we cracker barrel know it is forever launch pad.
