Shuttle Astronaut Selection
« on: 09/24/2006 08:07 PM »
How many Shuttle Astronaut Candidate Selections were canceled since the beginning of the program?

I think, the first cancellation was after the 51L accident in 1986.

Any comments?

In answer to your question, NASA selected the 12th group of astronauts in 1987, just a year after the 51-L accident.  I don't think they cancelled any selections and what I remember from my video tapes a lot of people applied to this group.
