NASA hiring more astronauts to explore Moon, Mars

Dream Job Alert! The world's premier space agency NASA is recruiting people for its new mission.

So beginning on March 2, the organization will be tolerating applications for its next class of space travelers.

And, assuming you meet all of those requirements, you'll have to pass NASA's long-duration spaceflight physical. Moreover, the complete Artemis I Orion spacecraft was shipped to NASA's Plum Brook Station (Sandusky, Ohio) in November 2019 for environmental testing to ensure that it can withstand the harsh environment of space on its journey around the Moon and back.

A handful of new ones will be hired for the astronaut corps and begin training.

NASA is celebrating its twentieth year of continuous presence on board the International Space Station in low Earth circle this year, and they're very soon sending the first woman and then a man to the moon by 2024. Gaining new experiences on and around the Moon will prepare NASA to send the first humans to Mars in the mid-2030s.

"This is a 21st century budget worthy of 21st century space exploration", said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine during a speech Monday.


Once all of those pieces are put together in orbit, NASA will have all the infrastructure it needs to send astronauts to the lunar surface, which Loverro said he is confident the agency will do by the end of 2024.

New this year is the requirement for a master's degree in a STEM field, including engineering, math or biological, physical or computer science.

Additionally, candidates need a minimum of two years' professional experience, or, in the case of pilots, 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time.

Those selected in the first round will also have to complete two years of testing, which involves some of their most notorious training sequences, such as swimming the length of three pools and treading water continuously for 10 minutes while wearing a flight suit; running emergency scenarios in high- and low-pressure altitude chambers; and performing mid-air maneuvers in microgravity on an aircraft that toggles altitudes up to 40 times a day.

You'll need a relevant Master's degree, be prepared to live and work 250 miles (400 kilometers) above Earth on the International Space Station, and be a United States citizen. "After returning humans to the Moon in 2024, NASA plans to establish sustainable lunar exploration by 2028".
