From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There were 23 astronauts in the NASA Astronaut Group 15. The group name for these astronaut trainees was originally The Snails due to the fact that no group was conviened the previous year and thus the group was slow in coming. Group members adopted The Flying Escargot as their moniker, possibly in reference to the fact that two members of the group were from France, or in reference to the famous "flying escargot" scene in the movie Pretty Woman. The group featured ten pilots, nine mission specialists, and four international mission specialist trainees.
