Do you have the right stuff? The U.S. is looking for a few good astronauts.


If you’ve ever dreamed of strapping yourself onto the back of a giant rocket and exploring outer space, this job may be just for you: NASA is accepting applications for a new class of astronauts.

The pay, to be sure, isn’t great—the salary range starts at just $66,026 per year. And be forewarned: “Frequent travel may be required.”

Still, your Instagram following will undoubtedly increase astronomically.
