NASA: Frequent travel may be required

NASA is now accepting applications for astronauts. You might fly in the International Space Station, two currently unnamed spacecraft being built, or the Orion deep-space exploration vehicle.

“Frequent travel may be required.”

“Distant and near visual acuity must be correctable to 20/20, each eye. The use of glasses is acceptable.”

Hey what? An astronaut with glasses?

As awesome as it might be, that's not a job I'd ever be interested in. Motion sickness, leaving family, isolation... Nope. Someone else can have it.

I would have to wear glasses. That would be strange.

I'm really surprised they allow glasses. I think the Air Force requires perfect vision without glasses, 'coz what if they break during a flight? You can't do your job if you can't see anything. Thanks for the interesting post!

Very interesting. Although the list of requirements is actually pretty strict. :-)
