HOUSTON – A month after being announced to the world, NASA’s ten new astronaut candidates show up for work to begin two years of training.

The four women and six men, who were chosen from a pool of more than 12,000 applicants, begin their new careers as future space station crew members and possible moon walkers on Monday January 10. They are the 23rd class of NASA trainees and the 22nd to be based at the Johnson Space Center in Houston since 1962.
