    It doesn't really matter, because the Space Shuttle (STS) will be retired after the STS-133 mission in 2010, and you can't possibly become an astronaut by then.

    Most astronauts have studied engineering or natural sciences -- as far as I know, a Bachelor's degree is the bare minimum. For the commander or pilot, aeronautical or mechanical engineering would probably be useful, but payload specialists can be experts in all sorts of fields.
