Retired NASA astronaut and author Clayton Anderson joins Michael this week for a discussion on the questions that people usually have for an astronaut, the psychological effect of catastrophic failures during Clayton’s prospective years, what it was like to train underwater in preparation for space, the near-tragic injury he experienced while doing so, what it meant to get the phone call of acceptance from NASA, getting sent to Russia for the STS-131 mission despite being on probation, the importance of having a specific focus for each mission, how to fight boredom and cabin fever, the only UFO he ever encountered, how gratifying it is to set a heroic example for kids, the limitations of long term stays in orbit, a life-changing application for astronauts to regularly communicate with their families, plus how to temporarily become taller, and so much more!
