What Makes An Astronaut? - What is the definition of astronaut? Who gets to call themselves by that name? Caroline, Lindsay, and Lino discuss whether simply going into space is enough to earn the title of astronaut and whether the title and definition make a difference as we head into an era in which space travel will open up to everyone.
