Burning Question: What's one job where federal experience really comes in handy?
- March 17, 2010
In a recent job posting on SpaceRef.com, Bigelow says it "seeks professional astronauts to fill permanent positions. Qualified applicants need to have completed a training program from their government or recognized space agency and have at least some flight experience on a recognized space mission. Specialized training and/or experience (ie: Medical, Payload Specialist, EVA, Pilot, etc.) is not a pre-requisite, but is definitely a plus."
If you haven't been on a NASA mission, good luck with your application for one of those jobs.
