It's not impossible to think that during the years that these individuals lived in our region, they looked up into the same exact night sky we admire so much, and thought it was worth checking out in person. Now, it's your chance. You don't need to be a West Point graduate to apply, this application is open to anyone who has earned a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science or mathematics. An advanced degree is desirable.
Candidates also must have at least three years of related, progressively responsible professional experience, or at least 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft. Astronaut candidates must pass the NASA long-duration spaceflight physical. NASA needs the best and the brightest out of all of us. There's more development of spacecraft happening, than any other time in our history, and we're looking to push further out into space than we ever have before. This is your opportunity to be a part of that story.
Do you have the passion for space exploration? Applications for consideration as a NASA astronaut will be accepted here, beginning December 14th, 2015.
