      Eat all your greens
      Study science or engineering really hard or be a really good pilot
      Wash behind your ears.

      Yes, be healthy/excercise fit, and study science. There seems to be two routes in america: the science route (get an engineering/physics/space physics degree and then work for the right people) or go to the air force academy, fly fighter planes, and then become a test pilot.
