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.
