NASA is hiring more new Artemis generation astronauts. Will you be next?

NASA’s latest astronaut class shares their journey.

To join them, astronaut candidates must have earned a master’s degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science, computer science or mathematics. The requirement for the master’s degree can also be met by:
• Two years (36 semester hours or 54 quarter hours) of work toward a Ph.D.
program in a related science, technology, engineering or math field;
• A completed doctor of medicine or doctor of osteopathic medicine degree;
• Completion (or current enrollment that will result in completion by June 2021) of a
nationally recognized test pilot school program.

Candidates also must have at least two 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.

  1. i would like to become an astronaut but only american citizens are allowed but technically you are not even american yourself and only the indians are really american. so my question is may europeans become astronaut at nasa

  2. I’m only 17 so I can’t apply now but I know I’m gonna be in space by 2028 🙂 anything is possible in this generation with all the technology we have, and I know anybody could do it if they’re determined enough. Aerospace engineering here I come, just give me a few years and I’ll be up in space

  3. I am hoping that with the panic concerning the virus that hit the world , that you guys at NASA will understand how important we start to build self suficient city on earth first , or we will never make it , we should already have self regenerative atmospheric oxygen that is clean and virus free , if we dont fix this here and now , how are you going to fix it on Mars? , vaccination doesn't work if the air we breath is poison, I'm no rocket scientist but you guy are way off , start by building city here on earth and in our ocean that can protect us from natural cataclysm, then we maybe ready for the moon , that my personal opinion, you welcome to share it
