NASA's Original Astronaut Job Post [REALITY CHECK]

The National Archives just posted the original 1959 job description for astronauts for NASA’s Mercury mission. Duties included specialized training exercises to build up tolerances to the motions and forces, pre-flight simulations, develop proficiency and confidence for vehicle operation under specific atmospheric conditions related to anti-gravity.

HOW FREAKING COOL IS THAT?

Would today’s job description for astronauts include proficiency in Space Invaders?
