  • This resource provides information on all of the astronauts that have been a part of the U.S. space program (as well as some facts about other countries' space programs), including how many flights each has participated in, where they are from, where they attended college, and many more fun facts.  This material contacts a great deal of data on these individuals and could be used as data sets for teaching basic statistics concepts.
