My ambition is to become an astronaut

I am in Std X (Karnataka Boards). My ambition is to become an astronaut. What combinations must I choose in PU?

Astronauts go out into space to conduct experiments and research on various different projects. To become one, you need to have a high level of fitness and the right attitude to spend long periods of time in space. Scientific and technical competence is essential. Take Science and Mathematics in 10+2 then appear in ISAT, conducted by Indian Institute of Space Science & Technology (IIST), Thiruvananthapuram for B.Tech. Aerospace Engineering/Avionics. All engineering graduates from the IIST are absorbed in the ISRO.

A career as an astronaut is not always as thrilling as it seems. One has to dedicate a lot of hours to training and practice before being allowed to go into space. Moreover getting into training programmes is very difficult because of the high level of competition and the relatively low number of astronauts required globally.

In India, astronaut training is yet to begin. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) of USA select people from all over to participate in their astronaut programme.
