Beyond the Moon: The Next Generation of Astronauts

Monday, July 20, 2009

On the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing, The Takeaway talks to two members of the next generation of astronauts: Kate Rubins, who has been accepted to NASA’s 2009 Astronaut Candidate Class; and Tina Druskins, a high school sophomore who just got back from Space Camp.

"We're getting into a really exciting time with the kinds of technologies that are being developed. I'm thrilled to be getting in at the ground floor of Constellation and to be part of the exploration that's coming up."
