NASA astronaut Clayton Anderson chats with Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson and Scoop B Radio about life in outer space. Press Play Below To Listen!
Other than wanting to be a police officer, fireman or a WWE wrestler, many kids place being an astronaut high on their following your dreams bucket list!
Think about it: You’re literally in outer space and boldly going where no man has gone before. Wait, I think Star Trek: The Next Generation already took that one already!
But I digress!
Outer space life seems quite lit! NASA astronaut Clayton Anderson thinks so too. An author of The Ordinary Spaceman: From Boyhood Dreams to Astronaut and a recipient of the Tom Osborne Leadership Award, a NASA Spaceflight Medal and a NASA Exceptional Service Medal, Anderson has more than a few space missions on his resume.
Most impressive was his living and working underwater for fourteen days while serving as an aquanaut during the NEEMO 5 mission. For those keeping score at home, Anderson, along with Astronauts Peggy Whitson, Garrett Reisman and scientist Emma Hwang lived off the coast of the Florida Keys, in a submersible deep-sea habitat off the coast of the Florida Keys, called Aquarius.
Meanwhile in the galaxies and the planets, one has to wonder: what’s it like up there?
“It is way cool,” Clayton Anderson told me while appearing on Scoop B Radio. “I tell people I was Superman every day. I flew to breakfast, I flew to work, I flew to the bathroom and I flew while I was going to the bathroom.”
In all actuality though, Anderson says the closest comparison to anything on land is scuba diving.
