More than 10% of shortlisted CSA Astronaut candidates are ISU Alumni !

Out of the 3000 candidates preselected by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), a shortlist of 70 astronaut candidates has been presented on their website. ISU is pleased to note that a large number of alumni are part of this group.

As we can count from the website referred to, we can note (in alphabetic order):

•    Julie Bellerose (SSP04)
•    Shane Jacobs (SSP07)
•    Jameel Janjua (SSP01)
•    William Shane Journeay (SSP06)
•    Catherine Laurin-Marchetti (SSP01)
•    Peter Lee (MSS97)
•    Kris Lehnhardt (SSP08)
•    Olathe McIntyre-Clark (MSS05)

The biographies of these candidates can be found under aforementioned link.

ISU wishes all candidates, but evidently in the first place its alumni, a successful continuation in this selection process and hopefully, later, a very successful journey ad astra!
