Astronaut Training

SAT // FEB 01

Space exploration crash course meets 90's Nickelodeon game show

Join hosts Corinne Caputo (author of How To Success) and Loren Grush (Space Reporter at The Verge) as they put REAL scientists and REAL comedians through the rigorous tests of Astronaut Training to see who will “win” a “trip to space.” Our challenges simulate those actually done by astronauts-in-training, as if they were made by a gazillionaire with too much time on their hands. Only one flight crew can emerge: come witness who will become the next great American heroes!

Mike Brown (MTV) and 
Sarah Laskow (senior science editor @ The Atlantic)
Arti Gollapudi (UCB) and 
Ben Pope (NYU, NASA Sagan Fellow)
