Quotes

"When I first met him, he knew absolutely nothing about rockets, though he clearly had a scientific mind," Zubrin said. "by 2004, he had learned a fair amount, and by 2007 he knew everything. this guy had gone and educated himself in this entire art. if you sat down with him and asked a bunch of technical questions about rocket engineering, he could answer them all."
...it comes to selecting astronauts, experts usually try to pick the best individuals and guess about how they would function in a crew," says Zubrin. "but we have learned that group chemistry is not just a function of individual characters. we had people serving on several crews, and in some they were excellent members, while in others there were problems. you won't be able to see this unless you put the people together in a simulated environment."
