The Groupon Guide to: Astronaut Skills

Astronauts need to be world-class athletes, die-hard patriots, and scientific masterminds, but any montage of astronaut training also reveals these other crucial skills they possess:

• Holding your breath for more than 30 seconds, even if someone is trying to make you laugh
• Saying "Tang tastes as good as orange juice" with a straight face
• Being blessed with particularly flappable cheeks
• Juggling three beanbags at once (if you're that good on Earth, imagine how good you'll be without gravity!)
• Being bald or having very little hair (male astronauts only)
• Naming all the planets in correct order in fewer than three tries
• Providing their own spacesuit
