Unemployed?

Wanted: Astronauts; Missing: US rocket to fly them


news.yahoo.com...

Criteria is not as tough as you think if you have an engineering degree. I found it funny they did not mention age.

Someone on ATS apply, fly to space and tell us if there are E.T. spaceships out there!


That would be my biggest dream, but meh, what would they want from me as an economics student.

edit on 16-11-2011 by Kemal because: (no reason given)

Only if they promise they are not gonna strap me on a rocket like Wyle coyote and shoot me to the cosmos.
But I would like a job like that. I dont think my level of scientific study would premit it.

Well there goes my chances of ever being an astronaut. My vision can't be corrected to 20/20 due to the shape of my eye...Oh that reallllllllly sucks.

I want to work in aerospace engineering and if I could have gone to space I so would have. I am also quite alright designing the orbiters that go to space or Mars. I really want to work with Mars projects in the future.

Seems according to the article they want to make sure they have enough astronauts for future space travel. There seems to be many who are retiring with the shuttle ending.

Good luck to all the new applicants for sure!

Actually it says >>
Before you polish up your resume, NASA is not loosening its standards. You must have at least a bachelor's degree — most astronauts have a master's or a doctorate — in engineering, biological science, physical science or math. You must learn Russian, but be a U.S. citizen. You must know basic physics. Being a medical doctor or a teacher helps. You must have vision that can be corrected to 20/20, no high blood pressure and be between 5 feet 2 inches (1.5 meters) and 6 feet 3 inches (1.8 meters).

Given these
Maybe I should try for it..

Am I missing something? We end the shuttle program, relying solely on Russia to get to the ISS. Since we dont seem to have a manned space program ourselves, why the recruiting drive?

On another thought, with the economy the way it is, I am curious what some of the larger companies do when they read a resume that lists Astronaut as previous job.

Who has any of that on their resume under age 50? Do people normally have 4-6 year degrees in 4 or more areas of study? Yes I'm a doctor, teacher, engineer, biologist who speaks many languages and know Russian fluently.... so I figured why not strap myself to a rocket built by the lowest bidder.

On the USAjobs link >> my favorite part

..NASA, the world's leader in space and aeronautics is always seeking outstanding scientists, engineers, and other talented professionals to carry forward the great discovery process that its mission demands. Creativity. Ambition. Teamwork. A sense of daring. And a probing mind. That's what it takes to join NASA, one of the best places to work in the Federal Government.


Especially if you are flying on those Russian rockets(judging by the recent Phobos mission)..and a few others too.

Yes I saw that, but it said it helps to have more than just the basics.
You are so witty, have you applied for a comedian license?

This country could accomplish so much in space if it would put forth just a little bit of effort! Sad the state it has gotten into.

Surprised there was no posts elaborating that NASA has no space shuttle or rockets anymore. Nobody mentioned stargates? Is this board slipping?
