RE: Have we been too dogmatic about keeping astronauts alive?

Yes, your proposal is sound, to me.
But the broader space policy should bias towards old people retiring into space, imo.

They have the money.
Nurses wouldn't have to lift them.
They couldn't fall and break a hip.

It just makes sense to send old folks into orbit, or the moon.


Lots of wisdom in that. Like the elderly gents at Fukushima, doing the radioactive stuff so younger people don't have to.
