    No.
    Try the airforce. RAF or USAF. USAF would be better, but hard to get into if you are not a resident. Do you have a social security no.?

    mayb the british mite get their act together, and sort out a space program, tho they should sort a few things out before that, like the state of the NHS.

    what about a doctor to the astronauts, so i'd have to go to space too, cos i'm hopefully doing medicine next yr?
    what are the chances??
    i do have american and british passports tho!
    No, they don't take doctors into space. See my post above; requirements are taken directly from NASA.

    USAF=United states air force.
    They always have someone with medical training onboard, but only for minor things. If there is a major emergancy they will be forced to abort the mission.
    A bit redundant as nothing goes up for several years now (manned at least)

    Then wait till they ask for people to take the one way express to mars. They will need doctors.

    Well, what if one of them needs a haircut? You can't cater for everything; overkill! They carry specialists with skills relating to the mission at hand or the payload being carried, and pilots. If you want an easy way up, get into an industry making things that need to go into space.
