According to Discovery, aspiring cosmonauts need to also know how to write a Twitter post, a limerick or a haiku as part of their NASA applications.

Here's a winning entry from Victor Glover, 37, a U.S. Navy pilot and one of the eight members of the newly announced Astronaut Class of 2013.

"Eyes fixed gazing off into space
My mind in awe of the human race
This is all dizzying to me
Because I gave so much blood and pee
Happy to be here (by the) colonoscopy place."
