I am deeply grieved by the loss of the crew of Columbia. I express my sincere condolences to the families and friends of the astronauts.

I am not a brave man... I do not have the right stuff. Astronauts are really a cut above.
What are you going to do with astronauts who first reach the surface of Mars and then turn around and rocket back home-ward? What are they going to do, write their memoirs? Would they go again? Having them repeat the voyage, in my view, is dim-witted. Why don't they stay there on Mars?
I claim that space is part of our culture. You've heard complaints that nobody knows the names of the astronauts, that nobody gets excited about launches, that nobody cares anymore except people in the industry. I don't believe that for a minute.
Neil deGrasse Tyson

Our astronauts, when they go orbiting around the earth, they actually come back slightly younger than a twin that they would have on the planet Earth who was stationary. This is called the twin paradox.
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.
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.
Astronauts are not superhuman. They lead ordinary lives and have varied personalities.
Every one of today's smartphones has thousands of times more processing power than the computers that guided astronauts to the moon.
