Fear not, wannabe space travelers … NASA’s gonna keep recruiting. Better work on your extra-curriculars!
NASA will start accepting applications for new candidates for its astronaut corps in early November, the space agency announced Monday (Oct. 3).
Selections for the new astronaut class, which will be the 21st group of space travelers in the agency’s history, in 2013, agency officials said. The newly minted spaceflyers will then begin training in August 2013 for long-duration missions to the International Space Station, as well as destinations in deep space.
