NASA announces new astronaut class
Posted: Fri, Dec 10, 2021, 12:39 PM ET (1739 GMT)
NASA introduced a new class of astronauts Monday while its safety advisory group recommended changes in the planning and management of exploration missions. The 10 members of the astronaut class of 2021, six men and four women, will start two years of training in January, after which they will be eligible for flight assignments. NASA introduced the astronauts the same day that its Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel, in a special meeting, offered several recommendations it says are vital to ensuring the success of future exploration efforts. Those recommendations include a new long-term strategic plan, creating a "board of directors" at the agency and consolidating the overall Artemis effort into a single program.
