Applicants can submit their form from March 2 to March 31. You must be of American nationality, be a graduate of at least a master’s degree in engineering, biology, physical sciences, computer science or mathematics. Doctors of medicine and osteopathy are also accepted as pilots who have been trained in a recognized school.

NASA does not specify how many people will be recruited, but in 2017 during a similar campaign only 12 applicants were selected from 18,000 candidates.

The agency will share the list of winners in mid 2021 and their training will begin. After initial training, they will be able to claim to participate in missions on the ISS before considering participating in the lunar missions in 2024, then in the Martian missions in 2030.
