NASA to Seek Applicants for Next Astronaut Candidate Class

In early November, NASA will seek applicants for its next class of astronaut candidates who will support long-duration missions to the International Space Station and future deep space exploration activities.

A bachelor’s degree in engineering, science or mathematics and three years of relevant professional experience are required in order to be considered. Typically, successful applicants have significant qualifications in engineering or science, or extensive experience in flying high-performance jet aircraft.

After applicant interviews and evaluations, NASA expects to announce the final selections in 2013 and training begins that August.
