Rocket Man Wanted

The Canadian Space Agency is looking for astronauts. Two applicants will be chosen to join the Canadian Space Agency Astronaut corps and a pool of qualified candidates will also be created for future positions.

The Canadian Space Agency is seeking outstanding scientists, engineers and/or medical doctors with a wide variety of backgrounds. Creativity, diversity, teamwork, and a probing mind are qualities required to join the Canadian Space Agency’s Astronaut Corps. To withstand the physical demands of training and space flight, candidates must also demonstrate a high level of fitness and a clean bill of health.

The astronauts will train for tours of duty on the International Space Station, particularly for performing maintenance tasks both inside and outside the ISS.

This is a very cool posting, but I’m looking forward to the day that this kind of job is routinely listed on
