Bob will discuss the experiences that prepared him to be selected as an astronaut. In his specific case, military training and academic training played a major role.

These include wilderness survival courses, living for extended periods in the NOAA Aquarius underwater habitat, as well as additional mission specific training. He will also discuss the typical level of involvement of astronauts in the various scientific payloads onboard the ISS.
