Bucket List Dreams: NASA Is Hiring Astronauts


The recruitment video feels a little lame, but since this is a call for astronauts we can totally forgive. NASA’s hiring space cadets to help identify ” … possible near-Earth asteroids to explore with the goal of visiting an asteroid in 2025.” They’ll be sending a “robotic precursor mission” to the asteroid in question five years before humans show up. Hopefully that means you beat the humanoids that get there first, or something. Click through if you’ve got the “creativity. Ambition. Teamwork. A sense of daring. And a probing mind.” Send us a postcard, won’t you?
