At a ceremony here on Friday, each new astronaut received a silver pin, a tradition dating back to the Mercury 7 astronauts, who were selected in 1959.
The graduates, nicknamed the "Turtles", after a metaphor that Vice President Mike Pence employed when the astronaut class was originally announced in 2017, is NASA's 22nd class of astronauts to graduate from basic training and the first class of astronauts to graduate under NASA's Artemis program, which aims to land the first woman and the next man on the moon by 2024.
Fast forward almost two years and Lieutenant-Colonel Kutryk, a former test pilot, along with fellow Albertan Jenni Sidey-Gibbons, is part of the latest cohort of astronauts to complete basic training, a milestone that means they are now eligible to fly in space.
Chari served as the commander of the 461st Flight Test Squadron and the director of the F-35 Integrated Test Force at Edwards Air Force Base (AFB) in California. Chari's wife, Holly, is a Cedar Falls native and they have three children.
The CSA's most recent astronauts are Joshua Kutryk, a Royal Canadian Air Force lieutenant colonel, and also Jennifer Sidey-Gibbons that holds a doctorate in design from the University of Cambridge where she was functioning as an assistant teacher in burning in the Department of Engineering. He then earned a master's degree in aeronautics and astronautics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and graduated from the US Naval Test Pilot School in Patuxent River, Maryland. With a goal of sustainable lunar exploration later this decade, NASA will send the first woman and next man to the surface on the Moon by 2024.

But the SLS core has to pass the green run before Artemis 1 can get off the ground.
In its statement, NASA Administrator Jim Bridensstein of the agency's Johnson Space Center in Houston said, "2020 will be sending American astronauts from U.S. land to American rockets and this year will be a key time for our Artemis program as well as going to the moon and beyond". During a segment of the graduation program in which selected students were able to ask questions, Matt, a student from Wesley Elementary School, asked the astronauts about our future on the moon and how long we're going to stay. These spacesuits feature advanced mobility and communications and interchangeable parts that can be configured for spacewalks in microgravity or on a planetary surface.
The development of lightweight and robust medical diagnostics is seen as necessary for deep-space missions to the moon and beyond, when a speedy return to Earth will not be a option in cases of medical emergency.
Kudryk, 37, is from Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., and Sidey-Gibbons, 31, is from Calgary. "We came in peace for all mankind".
About his next step, Chari said: "We won't be assigned missions for a while but in the meantime we'll be helping all around Johnson Space Centre with different offices that are working on getting us to the moon".
"They are the best of the best: They are highly qualified and very diverse, and they represent all of America", claimed NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.
Before the United States sent the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon, it sent three classes of robotic missions between 1961 and 1968.
