NASA has been conducting an extensive search for its new batch of aspiring astronauts for a year and a half now. Finally, the agency has revealed the eight lucky candidates who were successfully chosen among the staggering 6,100 applicants for the position. The 2013 new astronaut interns will help the agency in pushing the boundaries of space exploration and will have the opportunity to travel to unexplored spots within the solar system.

They are going on Mars in near Future… WOW

First off, the group shall undergo intensive training at several space centers that are scattered around the globe in order to be fully prepared for new missions such as travelling to Mars, exploring an asteroid, and engaging in a low-Earth orbit. All of the members feel excited about what’s going on in the International Space Station and how it can launch an American spacecraft from US soil. If all goes well, they’d be the first group to be part of a human mission that will explore an asteroid and the planet Mars.

The eight highly qualified candidates were chosen based on their academic, operational, and physical strengths. Having diverse backgrounds and skills, the group is believed to contribute heavily to the agency’s lifelong commitment to human exploration. The new batch of astronauts will commence training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center located in Houston this coming August.
