NASA is Now Accepting Astronaut Applications

NASA has just announced that it is now accepting applications for a new class of astronauts—some who may one day travel to Mars. There are a few initial requirements, including a US citizenship, a degree in an engineering-related field and either a doctorate degree or experience piloting a jet. If selected, applicants will pass through a two-year physical and mental evaluation, as well as undergo various tests in specialized skills before even beginning training for a future space mission.
