Although I've been told by friends at JPL that I'm way too old
(having picked up a BS at JPL's owner in 1991) for any of the planned
manned missions, I recently ran into an ESA bureaucrat who claimed I
was the perfect age for the proposals they were undertaking. (it
seems they are very unsure of the radiation shielding on an
interplanetary, so they figure it would be far better to loft scratch
monkeys in their tin cans)
While you don't have to "think in Russian"* to qualify, training is
through the Cosmonaut program and so a good working knowledge is
* have I sufficiently dated myself?
