NASA is looking for new astronauts to join their team for the new space missions on 2021 and 2030 to go to the Moon and Mars. Astronauts to be accepted will take part in the Lunar mission to be carried out until 2024 and the Mars mission to be carried out until mid-2030.

Artemis I, the first integrated flight test of the SLS rocket and Orion spacecraft, aims to send Orion into a lunar distant retrograde orbit, which is a wide orbit around the moon that is farther from Earth than any human-rated spacecraft has ever traveled. The space agency has advertised an astronaut for these two major space studies.

NASA is preparing to send one man and one woman to the moon as part of the emerging Artemis program, and its asking American scientists, pilots and engineers who think they have the right stuff to apply within.

After getting a record number of uses during its last recruitment - more than 18,000 individuals applied for the 2017 class - NASA has expanded its qualification prerequisites and added another progression to the application procedure.

NASA will also accept candidates with two years of a PhD program under their belt, or a completed doctor of medicine (or orthopaedic medicine) degree, or who have completed a nationally recognized test pilot school program. The first condition to apply for NASA's announcement of astronaut is to be a U.S. citizen. The area company additionally requires candidates to have a minimal of two years of "associated, progressively accountable skilled experience" of their field. With basic training, candidates are expected to successfully complete military survival, robotic skills and Russian language training.

NASA will pay 55,000 to 120,000 dollars (annually) to the astronauts that he chose by weaving it so often. Candidates who will apply from the USA army will receive a different payment. On Tuesday, NASA announced that it is hiring eligible Americans for its next intake of astronauts. So you look at the missions that you have today, look at what the normal retirement rate is and then you figure out what all the jobs are - supporting the design folks, executing the plans, training and fly outs and still flying the space station 24/7. The US administration now wants to change this situation. With Artemis, NASA aims to build a sustainable human presence on the lunar surface after the landing in 2024.
