If you’ve ever dreamed of going to Mars – here’s your chance! (well, sort of)
NASA is looking for applicants for several year-long missions to simulate life on the red planet.
You’ll be based at NASA’s Johnson Space Center.
Each mission will consist of four crew members living and working in a 1,700-square-foot-module.
NASA will then throw all kinds of scenarios your way to mimic what could happen in space, everything from equipment failures to simulated spacewalks.
The paid volunteers will work a simulated Martian exploration mission complete with spacewalks, limited communications back home, restricted food and resources, and equipment failures. https://t.co/MZBQCaLO66

The criteria for applying: Must be a U.S. citizen, non-smoking, between the ages of 30-55 with a master’s degree in a STEM field such as engineering, math, or computer science.
Who are 3 people you absolutely could not stand to be stuck with for a year in a module like this?
