I want a kinder and gentler society than the one Heinlein seemed to promote.
NASA astronauts were chosen, each a "superb physical specimen" with an IQ above 130, and the ability to function well both as part of a team and solo. Grissom, Cooper, and Slayton were Air Force pilots; Shepard, Carpenter, and Schirra were Navy pilots, and Glenn was a Marine Corps pilot.
Are governments and corporations going to pay to send average people into space at $1,000,000 per and risk dumb mistakes?
