NASA breaks ground on new antenna to prepare for Moon, Mars missions

The new recruits, the 23rd group to be selected over the past 60 years, will become part of NASA's Artemis program to move humanity beyond Earth orbit and build upon two decades of astronauts living and working in space.

NASA will accept astronaut applications for Lunar and Mars missions between March 2 and 31.

They are required to have a master's degree in the science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) field.

Applicants who meet the requirements will be included in the candidacy program by NASA.

The agency officials confirmed that these projects would assist NASA in learning more about the surface of the moon and the resources accessible up there to back astronauts.

"For the handful of highly talented women and men we will hire to join our diverse astronaut corps, it's an incredible time in human spaceflight to be an astronaut", he continued.

"We're celebrating our 20th year of continuous presence aboard the International Space Station in low-Earth orbit this year, and we're on the verge of sending the first woman and next man to the Moon by 2024", NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a statement. For the first time, astronaut applicants will also have to take an online assessment that may take up to two hours to complete. 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. The request would boost the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's budget by 12 percent for the fiscal year that starts October 1, with almost half of the funds going toward the "Moon to Mars" program, which includes the development of lunar landers, robotic rovers, heavy-lift rockets, and new spacesuits. "We're asking all eligible Americans if they have what it to takes to apply beginning March 2", he said. How they will get to the moon and how they will make the lunar exploration a fitting venture.

An updated timeline for that mission is currently under review, and NASA expects to present its new plan to Congress about six weeks from now, Doug Loverro, the director of NASA's Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate, told reporters at a State of NASA event at the Johnson Space Center in Houston on Monday (Feb. 10). NASA is about to open applications for its next generation of astronauts, and this time the invitation is meant for the public.
