NASA encouraging astronaut applications


NASA is calling all wannabe astronauts.

The space exploration agency released a video encouraging people to apply to its astronaut program. 

NASA went into more detail on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag "be an astronaut."

The agency says it selects qualified astronaut candidates from what it calls a "diverse pool of U.S. citizens with a wide variety of backgrounds."

Applications will be accepted from December 14th through mid-February. NASA is expected to announce its newest astronaut candidates sometime in 2017.
