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!
