Going into space is something that many people dream of, and now that dream could become a reality thanks to NASA.
The space agency has revealed that it’s hiring new astronauts next month for future missions to the moon.
Jim Bridenstine, NASA Administrator, explained: “We’re celebrating our 20th year of continuous presence aboard the International Space Station in low-Earth orbit this year, and we’re on the verge of sending the first woman and next man to the Moon by 2024.
“For the handful of highly talented women and men we will hire to join our diverse astronaut corps, it’s an incredible time in human spaceflight to be an astronaut.
“We’re asking all eligible Americans if they have what it to takes to apply beginning March 2.”
Unsurprisingly, the job has several strict requirements.
