Not bad only need a bachelor's degree in engineering, science or mathematics and have three years of relevant professional experience. I don't think I can squeeze it all in by July 1, 2008. Now if they were looking for a Network Admin on the Moon hook me up with that... <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font size="2" color="#0000ff"><em>William ( deapfreeze ) Hooper</em></font></p><p><font size="1">http://deapfreeze-amateur-astronomy.tk/</font></p><p> </p> </div>

i think its bogus that you have to have a sheet of paper that says you're smart in a lot of instances. <br /><br />for just one example. im not bad with fixing a C-130 engine (T-56), but lockheed wouldnt hire me in most cases because i dont have an A&P license. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

"i think its bogus that you have to have a sheet of paper that says you're smart in a lot of instances."<br /><br />But it isn't:<br />1. It shows that you can finish and accomplish something<br />2. It provides a first level discriminator for weeding out applicants<br />3. Most of the jobs that require the degrees are applicable to the some of the tasks of an astronaut<br />4. The course of study for the degrees is similar to astronaut training.

"<br /><br />How about network admin on ISS?<br /><br />I was watching NASA TV while they were chasing down a router problem:<br /><br />Ground: OK - now type Charlie, Mary, David. Now IP config ...<br /><br />Sound familiar?

ozspace...i worked on C-130 engines a bit in the navy in the engine shop. im comfortable with them. you dont need an A&P to work on them in the navy. (i worked on several other aircraft types, as well)<br /><br />however, i worked on C-9's mostly; hyd system, changing a windshield, brakes, other essential components and maintenance. no USN C-9 has ever been lost due to maintenance.<br /><br />all that, without a degree saying im smart. theres a video out there of a chimp flying an F-14. but not fixing it. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

You have your Navy paperwork, don't you? I'm surprised Lockheed or somebody similar wouldn't hire you since your Navy training is a lot better and more documented than most civilian schools. In any event, it shouldn't be too hard to add an A&P with your background.

Was the next question "Where's the Return key?"<br /><br />I wonder if these kinds of computing issues will recede into the background with younger people who have grown up with computers?<br /><br />J <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <div align="center"><em>We need a first generation of pioneers.</em><br /></div> </div>

Close. The next comment from the guy on the ISS was: do I just hit return or is this one of those devices that needs the "super secret" password?<br /><br />Turns out that that the super secret password was indeed needed. I thought the ground controller was going to give it to the guy on NASA TV, but the astronaut drifted off camera to retrieve the super secret password.

"Ground: OK - now type Charlie, Mary, David. Now IP config ... <br /><br />Sound familiar?"<br /><br />And the fix?? reboot! Few things a good reboot won't take care of. And I don't need a computer engineering degree to know that!

"<br /><br />Yes, we send that up a seperate way just because we know folks like you are listening! <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" />
