    Re: How to become an astronaut after completing 12th standard? Procedure to apply for it?

    Astronauts are selected by space oraganizations like ISRO in India or NASA in USA. Moreover ,people who go to space are those who are working in these organizations because it is very difficult for a person to servive in space without a thorogh knowledge about space which also includes technical knowledge.
    If you are a non-technical person,then its very difficult for you to become an astronaut,because basic requirements of an astronaut are bachelor's degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science, or mathematics.

    Requirements for an astronaut are bachelor's degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science, or mathematics. Hence.doing medical will not guide you to the path of becoming an astronaut. However,if you are interested in Biology,then you can opt for biological Sciences. After getting a bachelors degree in the above mentioned fields you can directly apply for an astonaut by visiting the sites of space organizations like ISRO in India or NASA in USA.

    if u wish to become an astronauts u need to have a Bachelor’s degree in biological science, engineering, mathematics or physical science from a recognized university, then u need to obtain any one of the following degrees from renowned institutes like IISC or IIT.

    Candidates can go for:
    •PhD (Astrophysics).
    •PhD (Geophysics).
    •PhD (Metaphysics).
    After graduation, the candidates can appear for the entrance exam which is held by the NASA for the recruitment of Scientists, Astronauts etc. Candidates can also find employment in ISRO. There are many openings in ISRO which is conducted for the recruitment of Scientists and Engineers. In order to join the ISRO, the candidates need to clear the Joint Entrance Exam set by the IIT’s.

    eligibility criteria:
    Citizenship: candidates who are joining the ISRO need to be Indian citizens
    Age limit: the candidate should be atleast 21 years at the time of joining. The age limit is relaxable for candidates belonging to the SC/ST category
    Qualification: candidates need to be Graduates from a recognized board or university.

    You need to pass the screening test first then submit the application form online. Next you need to undergo tests in professional and psychological aptitude assessment which includes behavioral and logical skills. After that they will go through a Medical evaluation. The final stage is an interview where the candidate will be judged before he/she is selected. You should remember that only 2 or 3 people out of scores of candidates will be chosen at the end. So, they need to be prepared for the toughest competition.

    If you want to become a astronaut then you have to do Most Helpful High School Courses like- Chemistry, Biology, Computer science, AP® Calculus BC, AP Computer Science AB and AP Physics C and Take as many AP and Honors courses as possible.
    But, The ideal astronaut candidate would probably have a BS from the Air Force academy and a PhD from MIT or Cal Tech........


    ok
    all the best.

    You need to be a US citizen by the time you graduate. Because only the USA has flight crew astronauts. There have been mission specialists from other countries. These people need to have at least one PhD in their field, preferably more.

    First you have to complete your graduation in Engineering, in my opinion aeronautical engineering is the best. After completing your engineering degree you must have 3 years experiance in the related work & you should have atleast a 1000 hrs experiance in a jet plane if you would like to join as a pilot

    doing medical after 12th standard is completely diverting your stream. you cannot become an astronaut, because for that you need an eligibility of a degree under the stream of Aeronautical/Aerospace or at least Mechanical. after pursuing 4 years of Engineering you have to pursue M.tech or MS under aerospace stream and then you will be eligible to become an astronaut. you have to do many research projects conducted by NASA so that if your work is good they might recruit you as an junior assistant. if you want to become an astronaut you have to completely divert your stream to engineering rather medical.

    You have completed your 12th and now you want to being Astronaut this is good.For this you have to prepare for IIT or AIEEE exam which is conducted by CBSE.After giving these tests you will get a college on the basis of your rank.Then you need to select your trade.For being Astronaut you have to choose Aeronautical trade.and after that you will able to being an Astronaut.

    Hey friend,

    For becoming the a astronaut you must satisfy the qualification framed by NASA so that you could be selected for the astronaut test.

    The main thing is that the candidate must hold a degree in engineering from a recognized university.

    The degrees in engineering that are needed may be classified as:
    1. Degree in Technology - Engineering technology, Aviation technology, Medical technology and many others.
    2. Degree in Psychology.
    3. Degree in Nursing.
    4. Degree in Social science.
    5. Degree in Aviation, Aviation management etc.

    Thank you.

    Aironatical engineering with good percentage and practical knowledge will help you to become astronaut. After B.Tech you can attempt the entrence exams like DRDO-BU in India. And also by doing p.hd you can become scientist it is also help full to you become austronaut.

    Re: How to become an astronaut after completing 12th standard? Procedure to apply for it?

    An astronaut is someone who is given training by the spaceflight course. The academic qualification needed is a pass in graduation in biological science/ mathematics/ engineering/ physics. It must be secured from a recognized institute. Those who are applying the course must have Indian citizen. Those below 21 years cannot apply. There are age relaxations for SC/ST aspirants. Applicants should clear the screening exam first. Online application is also available. Applicants selected after the interview. NASA and ISRO are some of the institutes the applicants can study.

    Re: How to become an astronaut after completing 12th standard? Procedure to apply for it?

    Hi,
    If u want to do instrumentation/experimental astronomy,u may go for engineering option.
    If u want to do theoretical astronomy u may go to science stream.
    You have to get a B.Sc. or B.Eng. in physics or Engineering subjects and apply for a master's degree programme in one of the Indian institutions.
    There are several institutes in India which offer to pursue a career in astronomy.
    Indian institute of Astrophysics(Bangalore)
    Indian institute of Science(Bangalore)
    Raman Research Institute(Bangalore)
    Inter-University center for Astronomy and Astrophysics(Pune)
    National Center for Radio Astronomy
    Most of these offer opportunities to the aspiring candidates based on the entrance test followed by an interview.
    Minimum qualification required for the exam is Master's degree in Physics.Some of the institutes accommodate engineering graduates as well.
    AL D BEST.

    hi
    to become an astronaut you first need to choose your major as Science and have knowledge about the space as well. So basically you need t specialize in aeronautic engineering.
    it is a tough road to becoming an astronaut you need to have basic flight training.
    and get a job in ISRO India or NASA America with your complete qualifications.
    so all the best.
