NASA Wants to Pay People to Pretend to Live on Mars

Ayyye! I am all about this!

NASA as a new job for space fans!

The agency is taking applications for four people to live for a year in Mars Dune Alpha, which is a 17-hundred-square-foot Martian habitat, created by a 3D-printer.

Located inside the Johnson Space Center in Houston, this project prepares the organization to eventually sending astronauts to Mars.

The paid volunteers will simulate spacewalks, limited communications, restricted food and resources and equipment failures.

Only American citizens are eligible and applicants have to be between 30 and 55, in good physical health with no dietary issues and not prone to motion sickness.

Would you want this job?  I know I would!
