The 'Your Priority Numeral' tab in Your Account area denotes Your position in the Priority Queue for Outer Space.
For any given Outer Space Venture, the composition of the Astronauts Pool would be as follows:
 The first half of the Outer Space Missions Pool [OSMp1], claiming at least 50 percent of its total capacity, would be filled by:
The Permanent Members of Astronrill in order of their priority.
 Second Half of the Outer Space Missions Pool [OSMp2], totalling a maximum of 50 percent of the total capacity, and comprising:
A portion selected on the basis of overwhelming technological necessity.
Technological expertise in a Permanent Member could be the basis for advancing them using this "overwhelming technological necessity" category into the OSMp2 of an earlier mission than their priority, without prejudice to those in OSMp1 prioritised ahead of them by numerical rank.
A portion auctioned off on the basis of technological expertise; wherein, the highest bidder(s) in that technology category will vie for the place(s). There is a reserve price in this auction; and if there are place(s) remaining on failure to meet this reserve price, these place(s) will be added to the Astronrill pool for Permanent Members.
A portion auctioned off to the highest bidder, without any restrictions on qualifications. Again, there is a reserve price in this auction; and if there are place(s) remaining on failure to meet this reserve price, these place(s) will be filled up by advancing the Permanent Members in OSMp1.
Therefore, your position in the Astronrill Permanent Member's Priority Queue is the prime determinant of your chances, unless your specific technical expertise qualifies you for a higher start in the second pool category.
Thus, in a mission of 1000 people, 500 would be from the Astronrill Priority Queue.
If your position is say 501, and if all second pool slots are filled by non-Astronrill people meeting their reserve bids at the minimum, then you will surely fit in the 2nd mission, when each mission is 1000 people.
Unless, that is, you fit into the OSMp1 pool of the 1st mission itself due to your overwhelming technological expertise!
Furthermore, if the bidders fail to meet the minimum reserve price, then these positions will be deemed vacant and filled in by the Astronrill Permanent Members; in which case, even the Member with Priority Numeral 501 will be able to fit into the 1st mission!
Since it is possible for outer space missions to be longer in duration, not over long years [except in the final stage of Inter-Stellar exploration], but possibly over a month or two, it would be preferable for families to register together; else, its possible that you might forfeit your position to fall back to a later mission where you could explore [and eventually, work] together with your family member(s).
