I was just looking at the bios page in Mike Mullane's Riding Rickets and saw that a lot of the the 1978 class were in their late 20's/early 30's. Were they the youngest class ever selected or is there another?

If I remember correctly, Steven Hawley is still the youngest selected NASA astronaut being picked at age 26.
