    Re: Is this plan nice to become a nasa astronaut?

    As to be eligible to apply to NASA as an astronaut, a candidate needs to have high level of education qualification. One of the main priorities is the technical education. If the candidates are selected then there will be additional training also. In addition to this the candidate will have to wait for many years before even being chosen to go for an actual mission under the NASA. There is some basic requirements one need to have before applying to NASA. The selection procedure of NASA is very tough. The candidates need to have a Bachelor's degree in a relevant science, which in your case can be B.Tech in Aeronautical Engineering. It can also be a degree in biology, math or some other physical science. But it will be ate your advantage if you have a Master’s or even a Doctorate. It looks like you prefer to carry on being a pilot. For this you will have to undergo at least 1000 hours in pilot training. You must also have a vision of 20/20 and pass the physical fitness exam.

    Of Course, your plan is really good. However, pursue the B Tech program in a recognized institute. Also, try to score really high marks. Then only you will be eligible to apply for the NASA jobs. Getting a career in NASA is not as easy as you think. Strive wholeheartedly in a systematic manner to get an employment in NASA. Moreover, you need to carry out the PhD program after completing the Mastersí course. It seems like you wish to be a pilot. If you want to become a pilot, you have to undergo at least 1000 hoursí pilot training. In addition, you should pass the physical standards of fitness.

    Hi Sir,

    Its very good that if have planned to join NASA .Even your plan for joining to NASA is also not very much bad .But instead of taking so much long time for the preparation for NASA ,zou can also opt for Undergraduate Student Research Program ,but for this step you have to go through some formalities if you are really interested to become an Astronaut. Here is the website namely http://usrp.usra.edu/students/, just see this website and you may able to get all your queries answers on this website. And then , you can modify your plan for joining to NASA .

    Re: Is this plan nice to become a nasa astronaut?

    Your plan is really very good. But to become a nasa astronaut a candidate must be highly qualified. Its not an easy task to get admission in nasa.
    It is very difficult task.
    Before getting admission in nasa you'll have to paas many exams like fitness exam etc..
    You'll have to take training for some months.
    The selection procedure of nasa is very tough.
    the courses you selected to do must do from a reputed college/university, because it will help u alot.

    good luck..

    Admission Procedures in IISC for 2011 were already closed in March 2011. So, you will have to try next year. you can get msc bioinformatics in IISC banglore by writing iisc entrance test or gate entrance exam.. For admission in IISC, you will have to either appear for IISC entrance test or GATE. You will be called for an interview the. This is the procedure for getting admissions in IISC.
    If you want to become a pilot, you have to undergo at least 1000 hoursí pilot training.

    Thumbs up Re: Is this plan nice to become a nasa astronaut?

    Yes your plan is really a good one, but some changes will make you even better.
    Go for aerospace engineering instead of aeronautical in a very good reputed institution.
    The best thing that made you select in NASA is Do an exceptional thing during your project work in final year.
    Every year NASA,s Exhibition is there in INDIA where you can show your project work.
    Besides that you should have a great knowledge and excellent skills.
    then first you go for posts in ISRO and gain some experiance then apply for NASA.
    Plan your future in a effective way.
    All the best...!!

    Re: Is this plan nice to become a nasa astronaut?

    yes my friend u can become anythng u are interested..all u need is hard work. talent, strength and skill..
    NASA is a world renouned institute in research and getting there is very very difficult..but not impossible!

    u have to pursue either aeronautical engineering till msc.level

    or do some courses related to geology till their research level

    or pursue msc.physics or radioactive physics, instrumentation,etc. .courses to get into very good posts in NASA but i would suggest u to do aeronaut engg to get into NASA..

    all the best my friend just go for it if u are determined nothing is difficult...gud luck..

    Ya your plan is good. After completing your degrees you apply nasa. But it is not a easy task. Nasa selected only highly qualified faculty members. You have more knowledge to be place in a astronaut in nasa. Good luck
