Bigelow Aerospace is hiring astronauts: Experience required
Bigelow Aerospace is taking the next step toward being a full-fledged "space" business: It's hiring astronauts.
According to a New York Daily News story the space habitat company is looking for astronauts to service its orbiting modules, perhaps do some extra vehicular activity; anything required to keep the inflatable space stations on orbit.
The openings come just as many shuttle engineers and NASA sub-contractors are wondering what the future will hold for them now that U.S. manned spaceflight has been put on the back-burner.
