Being astronauts is not easy. In addition to the multiple studies and tests they must go through, their missions isolate them in spaceships for months. This, of course, greatly affects about your personality and your body, so the NASA is looking for ways to counteract the negative effects of it. The space agency has to investigate this issue in depth, so it is planning an experiment and is looking for volunteers. On May 15, he published a call for people who want to participate in his study.
Volunteers will not have it easy : NASA wants to isolate them for 8 months somewhere in Moscow . The goal is to learn about the physical and mental consequences in humans after being quarantined for so long. This institution has already considered the return to the Moon and the arrival of Mars for this decade , so this research will be essential to mitigate the risk of astronauts on missions. All volunteers will be tested under characteristics of the space environment. They will also use virtual reality for some operations.
Not anyone can access this project. First, they are wanted to be between 30 and 35 years old and speak Russian and English . Only Americans with a doctorate, master or bachelor’s degree from professional schools or military training will enter . However, there has not yet been talk of a financial reward, which will surely be kept in reserve and will only be mentioned to those who pass the first calls. What is indicated is that it will vary depending on whether the person is associated with NASA, is an employee or contractor of the agency.
