A4H's own Dr. Erik Seedhouse spoke recently with the Waterloo Astronaut Training Corps (WATC) about astronaut training and the astronaut selection process. Like his book by the same name, Seedhouse's talk was titled "Prepare for Launch: The Astronaut Training Process." The entire 90-minute presentation is available for viewing online via the Waterloo Astronauts YouTube Channel in seven parts: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7. Erik spent the last portion of his talk discussing A4H during part 7.
WATC is a student group of motivated astronaut hopefuls at the University of Waterloo. In the same spirit as A4H, WATC brings together talented students and professionals to learn from each other and develop the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to be competitive as astronauts. A4H wishes them well.
