Astronaut Humor

How did the unemployed astronaut panhandle  for money?

He made a sign "Will do Moonwalk for money."

What kind of nuts do they serve on space tourism flights?


Astronaut Quotes

I remember growing up thinking that astronauts and their job was the coolest thing you could possibly do... But I absolutely couldn't identify with the people who were astronauts. I thought they were movie stars.

~ David M. Brown, Space Shuttle Astronaut

If offered a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask what seat. Just get on.

~ Christa McAuliffe, Teacher and Challenger Astronaut

The thing I'll remember most about the flight is that it was fun. In fact, I'm sure it was the most fun that I'll ever have in my life.

~ Sally K. Ride, First Woman to Orbit Earth on the Space Shuttle

Why are astronauts astronuts?

They have to be health nuts in order to stay in shape for the vigorous physical training they do to go into space and to be ready for space missions.

Also they need a good sense of humor to get a long with a wide variety of people and to cope with being in space is a small rocket of station with other people.

Astronuts is another Flickr group.
My favorite on that site is Astronaut Sponge Bob.

Astronaut Fun

Astronut Brown Ale- "For those of us who gravitate toward the nuttier side, this English Style Brown Ale is for us. A hint of malty richness and warm, nutty undertones are sure to send us lunatics straight to the moon and back!"
Quote from Rocket Republic Brewing Company website.
