NASA is looking for volunteers to sign up as a ‘Martian Astronaut’.
You won’t actually be going to Mars, but instead spend a year inside a simulated Mars colony.
Volunteers will be part of a four-person crew living inside a 1,700-square foot habitat inside Houston’s Johnson Space Center, where you’d carry out various tasks meant to simulate life on Mars.
The first of these missions is already halfway done – they even share official updates in a podcast.
We should probably mention that volunteers have the same requirements as actual NASA astronauts – including a master’s degree in STEM and experience as a pilot.
