Can Astronauts Access Internet In The Outer Space?

An Astronaut in outer space

Have you ever asked yourself “what would it take to become an astronaut for NASA?” or whether or not you wanted to become an astronaut? Well, I’m glad you asked, because you might not like what I’m about to tell you.

The word “astronaut” means “space sailor”, and is derived from the Greeks words. To become one, you need to be special, and I mean really really special. The assignments and duties of an astronaut are so extreme that it takes years and years of studying and must undergo extensive physical and mental training.

According to NASA, the basic requirements for an Astronaut Pilot are as follows:

  • Must complete a Bachelor’s degree in biological science, physical science, or mathematics, from an accredited institution in engineering.
  • Must have at east 1,000 hours pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft.
  • And must pass a NASA space physical, which includes a visual distant acuity of 20/100 or better uncorrected, correctable to 20/20 for each eye, blood pressure of 140/90 in a sitting position and must have a height between 62 and 75 inches.

As you can see, being an astronaut is defiantly not for everyone. While those poor people go under extensive training physically and mentally, we average people are concerned about one thing. We are concerned whether they can access internet in outer space or not.

Well, the good news is we know exactly whether they can access the internet in outer space or not and if it’s any good. You can read the complete article here:
