HOUSTON — Twenty-two candidates for the astronaut corps will be interviewed next week at Johnson Space Center in the final round of a selection process, a National Aeronautics and Space Administration official said Friday.

Four or five other groups of people, totaling 80 to 100, will be interviewed later. From all of these, spokesman Jack Riley said, "about a dozen" will be selected this summer to join the current group of 84 astronauts.
