Browsing through a book 1,227 QI Facts To Blow Your Socks Off I came across:
More than 50% of NASA employees are dyslexic, hired for their superior problem-solving and spacial awareness skills.
Where did this come from and, if accurate, how many astronauts fall into this statistic?

The book has a website listing the sources of its facts, but you need to know the page number of the citation.

NASA's human resources division says this "fact" is false in a reply on Twitter.
