NASA IS RECRUITING!

The space agency needs new astronauts for both its International Space Station and Orion projects, it has announced.

“New astronauts will be asked to explore deep space,” said Dan Burbank, a NASA astronaut said in a recruitment message.

They are also needed to build and fly Orion, which the space agency hopes will be the most powerful rocket ever built.

“The sky is not the limit!,” exclaims Burbank.

What are they looking for at NASA? Adventure. Commitment. Leadership. Achievement. Plus a bachelor’s degree in engineering, science or maths with three years of professional experience.

You will also have to be prepared for “long duration missions aboard the International Space Station”. Oh, and be a US civilian (sorry!)
