Astronaut Trainingon June 18, 2009 at 12:00 am
It’s a miracle that there is a comic here because Wes spent most of his week battling a vending machine and Tony had a run-in with the rebel alliance.
By the way, we have a recent post up on the front page dedicated to all of you sexy spambots out there.
the nasa is dumbing down, straight to idiocracy? 😀
One small step for man, one giant leak for mankind.
indeed, we need return to the basic concepts
Maybe their implying that mathematicians suck.
@bachterman- Ah yes I was thinking of idiocracy too.
But now I have to worry about astronaut ghosts.
Wow, I just discovered the hidden comics… I doomed to stay here forever…
Hidden comics? Am I missing something? =O
To find the hidden comics you have to press up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, start (enter) on your keyboard right when the animated worm thingy does his tenth head bob (starting from the left – his left, not yours). It’s pretty simple, really, and the payoff is pure fucking gold.
great job, but thats the Konami code originating in Contra series
Actually isn’t that the code from Gradius that gives you a shield and two helper ships? I’m gonna have to try it with Contra now.
noooooooo that’s the health regen code from Half Life 2 on Xbox XD
No, no, no, it’s the “You’ve been fucked” code from Real life.
There are none. Don’t worry about it.
raiders of the lost comic
i find this particularly amusing because i’m reading it from a NASA computer at LaRC. i still want to be an astronaut.
The middle frame is his O face.
You mean APART from the ones that are accessed by clicking just of to the top right of every comic?
A big Question mark appears ……. Click it.
And next time, don’t assume you know everything. 😉
I’ve noticed the past few days that the links to the hidden comics don’t seem to be working…unless you’ve re-hidden them.
Just a thought.
Not to be nitpicky, but bodies don’t decompose in space
He was picked clean by space-rats. Duh. Have you ever even BEEN to space?
You have me there, I totally forgot about the moon’s rat problem.
Not to mention a terrible land lord, see if I ever rent there again.
I just figured it was the Vashta Nerada. Space rats are much scarier.
lol yea there is jibblejack….it looks like you havent found them either
Do you read what you type?
Bring back the hiddens.
Move along. Nothing to see here. Move along…
My thoughts exactly, until I remembered that Simpsons episode where Homer is selected to go to outer space to connect the common man with space travel.
yes…yes you are…if you go to the immediate top right of the comic box(not your screen, just the box), you will find a magical button that will transport your computer moniter to a wonderful land, filled with laughter…
razor blades razor blades, get your razor blades. Some brand new, some lightly used, some rusty, and some already bloodied for you!
…..I think there is some porn in here some where too….. Maybe with razor blades?
People… still asking… about hidden comics… *head-desk* x 10
Hidden comic is even better than original, imho 🙂
Hidden comic is unrealistic. Chicken has not decomposed but human has? Belachelijk.
Space rats can only eat raw flesh.
Faulking brilliant, my friend.
very clever boys! 🙂 oh and i love that god can find the time to answer a fan! hysterical!
good one, but how would the body decompose in a space suit on the moon? unless nasa was sending skeletons to space until then. skeletons that bleed.
he naturally has decomposing bacteria in his body and his suit
even if he didnt, the cosmic glare from the sun would have melted the flesh off his face
Made me laugh hard. May you make a wallpaper from the third picture?
Wait…Is it compulsory to make a joke here?
Button, Button. Classic Richard Matheson
hidden comic is even more hillarious!
heh well least it doesn’t have zombies
Should have had a check list. They always use a check list. Recall the astronauts enjoyed skipping around on the Moon, like kids out playing in a field on Earth. Who can blame them in that kind of fantastic and unique environment. Sometimes they became a little too excited. I’m confident the controllers on the blue planet were biting their lips, while droplets of sweat poured down their faces every time an astronaut tripped on a Moon rock and fell, knowing the possible consequences of a torn space suit or a life support apparatus undone. They were only human, after all.
Maybe the skeleton face doesn’t literally mean decompose, but means the grim reaper has paid them a visit? Whatever. Cool comic.
am I the first one to notice that none of the characters have pupils?
Yes. You are the first to notice that trend that’s been around for years. Good job.
lol. didnt notice flag thru his foot at first.
A+ I laughed.
if you leave the cursor over the comic some text appears…
Idiocracy is a state ruled after an idea or ideology…. what do you mean?
great! now I have to move my base again! stupid moon ghosts… love this
Well, this explains why they had to fake the moon landing.
Oooorrrrrr… Maybe its just a comic…
To all of those complaining about decomposition, you should also be complaining about the color of the blood. It wouldn’t be oxygenated so it should be blue, not red.
Wow, a great comic, but everyone seems to be focusing on the details.
this is the origin of apollo 18
anyone else notice his suit says NAJA?
nobody is even concerned about how his skull has been separated from his vertebrae,
who told his family how he died btw
It’s simple. The rupture in his suit rendered it useless; resulting in some radiation from the sun , which wasn’t blocked because the moon has no atmosphere,which came in through the hole ; suffocation; and nearly zero pressure in the suit, resulting in the blood becoming useless and the expansion of skin ( but NOT like in that one scene in Total Recall). You are welcome.
The ligaments and muscles probably rotted away, and his skull floated off in the vacuum.
