Welcome to NASA’s Astronaut Biographies page. Here you’ll find biographies for all the astronauts who’ve had active duty since 1995.
When you arrive at the site you’ll find a list sorted alphabetically by surname. This list also contains information about their Selection Year and Group Number.
Just above the list, you’ll find brief introductory blurb about the list and it’s function.
To explore all you have to do is click on the names on the list which will whisk you away to the biography for that astronaut.
Each astronaut biography provides you with the following sections: Personal Data, Education, Organizations, Experience, NASA Experience, and Spaceflight Experience.
You’ll also find a picture of the astronaut included on their biography! Some of the biographies load as HTML pages, and others open as PDFs. Just a quick to be aware of.
This is a really cool way to see who the United States active astronauts are. Go check it out for yourself today.
