NASA Looking For Astronauts

By Pete | @kingpetey | 25 Sep 2007

Cnet is reporting that NASA is looking to take on astronauts for training in 2009 onwards. They are looking for between 10-15 candidates who have a bachelor's degree in engineering, science or maths and three years of relevant professional experience.

I have a bachelors degree in computer science but unfortunately only one years experience in relevant work (well my experience in. The job gives you the opportunity to drive moon buggys, fortunately I currently have a clean driving licence.

One of the requirements of the job comes from this money quote:

"Frequent travel may be required"

I always wanted to be an Astronaut when I was growing up, perhaps this is my opportunity - application is open until next summer!


I'd really like to read the help wanted ad for that job. Does years of playing "Space Invaders" count as relevant experience?
