Who would be a astronaut?

Anyway, the European Space Agency has come up with a remarkably ghastly way of annoying the inhabitants of the International Space Station, by opening up a competition for European children to cook up a ten song playlist for them.

Currently in orbit are 41 year old Russian Oleg Kotov, 48 year old Russian Fyodor Yurchikhin and 41 year old American Sunita Williams, although it looks as though she will be replaced by 48 year old Nebraskan Clayton Anderson in June. And just what are the prospects of Euroyouth decentring long enough to think what might please this disparate group? Very low, I think.

I suspect that the ESA will not be able to compel the troika to listen to the winning list, but if it is, I pity them the prospect of having to listen to *anything* on repeat for the duration. Well, maybe Cage's 4'33" might not be too bad.

I don't want to be an astronaut when I grow up because I'd have to wear a diaper and take pepper spray to ex-lovers, then have a breakdown.

A far cry from 'The Right Stuff', isn't it?
