According to Federal News Radio, NASA is currently looking to hire new astronauts and will begin the search for its 2013 class next month.

Some of the requirements to become an astronaut includes holding a bachelor’s degree in engineering, science or math, along with some work experience.

Duane Ross, manager of astronaut candidate selection and training, told Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris applicants face years of training, which is based on robotics and vehicle training, and flight readiness.

“Obviously, if you can’t fly this is probably the wrong job for you,” Ross said. He added that not all astronauts are trained pilots but they must be fully functioning crew members.
