Godspeed, Robb Kulin: For first time since Apollo, astronaut candidate leaves training

Information Temporary: NASA says Alaskan astronaut candidate Robb Kulin is leaving his training program on the finish of this month, one year after his selection for the Class of 2017. NASA spokeswoman Brandi Dean confirmed that Kulin was resigning for personal reasons, marking the first time since 1968 that an astronaut candidate has left this system earlier than qualifying for spaceflight. Kulin, 35, labored as an ice driller in Antarctica, a industrial fisherman in Alaska and an engineer at SpaceX earlier than his choice for the astronaut corps. His place within the 12-member Class of 2017 won’t be crammed, in accordance with stories from the Houston Chronicle and Ars Technica.
