Get Those Applications In Before July 1!
NASA's deadline for accepting
applications for the 2009 Astronaut Candidate Class is July 1.
Those selected could fly to space for long-duration stays on the
International Space Station and missions to the moon.
To be considered, a bachelor's degree in engineering, science or
math and three years of relevant professional experience are
required. Typically, successful applicants have significant
qualifications in engineering or science, or extensive experience
flying high-performance jet aircraft.
Teaching experience, including work at the kindergarten through
12th grade level, is considered qualifying. Educators with the
appropriate educational background are encouraged to apply.
After a six-month period of evaluation and interviews, NASA will
announce final selections in early 2009. Astronaut candidates will
report to NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston during the summer
of 2009 to begin the basic training program to prepare them for
future spaceflight assignments.
