NASA instituted what was called "the Goose Rule," saying that, whenever possible, there should be both a pilot and co-pilot in the aircraft. But with the advent of the "scientist-astronaut", not all the astronauts had any flight experience so they put the scientist-astronauts through a program so they could nominally meet the requirements should an emergency occur.

Somewhere back in my humor file I have an announcement from a AIAA mtg where it was stated that Astronaut <> now had her "Back Seat Operator" certification.
