Great Week for USNA Astronauts!

Former Navy SEAL and astronaut CAPT Chris Cassidy (USNA '93) was recently selected to be the next chief of NASA's Astronaut Office, the most senior position for still-active astronauts in NASA. Read more about Cassidy on the NASA website.

Additionally, CAPT Sunita Williams (USNA '87) was one of four astronauts selected to train for commercial space flight. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden (USNA '68) writes more about the commercial crew initiative and the astronauts selected on the NASA blog.

CAPT Chris Cassidy and CAPT Sunita Williams both spoke to
midshipmen earlier this year during the USNA Astronaut Convocation.
