Need a Job? NASA Needs You To Go To Mars

Being an astronaut is no longer a far-fetched fantasy from your childhood.

NASA is making dreams come true, and they have released a series of vintage recruitment posters for positions that could possibly exist on Mars!

It's probably safe to assume that a job on Mars is way better than your typical 9 to 5.

Unfortunately, we can't quit our day jobs just yet. The program could take a while to begin. NASA's three-step 'Journey to Mars' wouldn't be underway until around the year 2030.

When the program does start, it would be a one-way ticket to the Red Planet. Mars is about 140 million miles away. But if you were traveling at the speed of light, you would get there in 13 minutes.

Unfortunately, there is no aircraft that travels that fast, and it would instead take several months to arrive.

NASA's fastest mission, New Horizons, has a top speed of 36,000 miles per hour and could arrive to Mars in as little as six months. Most other aircrafts would take upwards of one year.

Then again, if you spent your whole life dreaming of being launched into space, one year of traveling should be cake.

ExoMars spacecraft heads out in search for life on Mars
The Proton-M rocket booster blasts off at the Russian leased Baikonur cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, Monday, March 14, 2016. Europe and Russia launched a joint mission Monday to explore the atmosphere of Mars and hunt for signs of life on the red planet. The unmanned ExoMars probe, a collaboration between the European Space Agency and Roscosmos, took off aboard a Russian rocket and is expected to reach Mars in October. (AP Photo/Dmitri Lovetsky)

BAIKONUR, KAZAKHSTAN - MARCH 14: In this handout photo provided by the European Space Agency (ESA), the ExoMars 2016 lifts off on a Proton-M rocket at Baikonur cosmodrome on March 14, 2016 in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. The Proton rocket is carrying the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) and Schiaparelli descent and landing demonstrator module to Mars. One of the Scientific objectives of the collaborative project between the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Russian Federal Space Agency is to search for signs of past and present life on Mars.
