Um excuse me, there's nothing I have said about Dick Gordon that is not 100% true.
The guy was horrible pilot as is compared to his compatriots.
He got into Nasa for two reasons.
His wife lied for him. (Which she later regretted).
And because while his judgement was poor, and his attitude beyond reproach, he was impervious to distractions.
However what NASA soon regretted, is that he was also impervious to awareness, of all the Astronauts of the Mercury craft, Dick Gordon, up the
longest, piloted the least.
While take for example John Glen, who had to do a manual re-entry.
I think Valhall you just are having trouble admitting that in most things I know what I'm talking about.
PS. Valhall, I pass the weed-out section in all requirements (For Mission Specialist) except for education requirements.
"Minimum Bachelors with 3 years work experience in the field of the major, Doctorate with 2 years experience in the field or Ph.D with no required
But as for Mission specialist I have no need for flight time (though the 1 years minimum training requires one to have 4 hours a month during, and
during the duration of the his being an Astronaut).
The vision requirement I horribly pass, 20/150.
The physical requirements I do pass.
So aside from credentials (which by far does not represent me since a great hobby of mine is Dimensional theory and the study of what I can pick up of
the space shuttle. As my math grows so does my off-hand knowledge).
I really hate people who judge others, especially when they judge me....especially because the only ones who ever bother to judge me, are online, and
what's even more funny, is they judge me when I rarely mention ANYTHING about me.
Hell only 2 or so people here even know my REAL name, and one knows my actual age.
And aside from my general location, no one here knows anything about me.
Yet you seem to be able to magically claim that I can not pass even the astronaut screening.
Well of course I can't, but then I'm not 35 years old with 10 years of research under my belt....but I have plenty of time.
