The Making of an Ex Astronaut by Brian OLeary - posted in Astro Art, Books, Websites & Other Media: The Making of an Ex Astronaut by Brian O’Leary Well this book is very interesting in the sense that it was published in just as a new group of astronauts were entering NASA.

These new astronauts were not pilots from the armed services but scientists. A twenty-seven-year-old planetary astronomer with moon dreams since childhood, O'Leary was one of the second batch of scientists selected for astronaut training.

Details *. This book provides a unique look at NASA in the years leading up to the Apollo 11 landing. Brian O'Leary was chosen as a part of NASA astronaut group 6, the second group of scientist-astronauts. O'Leary gives engaging descriptions of the NASA selection process and the astronaut office of the 's, which I really appreciated/5(3).

And, in its way, The Making of an Ex-Astronaut was a ground breaking book. O'Leary had written the first astronaut autobiography that was both personal and introspective not dry and academic.

I've never read "The Making of an Ex-Astronaut Whether you like O'Leary or not, if you want to understand the NASA culture (healthy or otherwise), then I strongly recommend reading the book to get a flavor of the NASA that was striding towards the moon inwhich bore a strong resemblance to the NASA of when I got to JSC.

While The Making of an Ex-Astronaut was criticized by many of O’Leary’s former colleagues and was not a massive success upon its release (perhaps aided by the public’s increasing lack of interest in spaceflight), this book did establish a template for future astronaut reminiscences, and for s writing about futurism.

It was a lot of fun meeting him. And I have enjoyed your series. Reply. Emily Carney on Ap at pm. Thank you. I wish I had met him – I never did, but I think we would’ve gotten along.

Brian O'Leary was one of the "Excess Eleven", the second group of Scientist-Astronauts hired by NASA in the midst of the Apollo program. In terms of the space program, he's pretty much a footnote, one of several who left or were forced out of the astronaut corps throughout the past few decades.
