Dutch astronaut to drive a bus

Holland’s best known astronaut Wubbo Ockels wants to learn how to drive a bus and is currently working on getting his licence.

The reason for the career-change is the Superbus project which he hopes to present at the Peking Olympics.
This high-speed (up to 250kph) bus is being developed at the Delft University of Technology with financial support from public transport firm Connexxion.
