New NASA job openings could be available within the next 10 to 20 years. They will be looking for teachers, farmers, assembly workers, miners, technicians, explorers, and surveyors according to a few recently published help wanted posters. Unfortunately, NASA applicants may have to wait for a decade or two for those positions to open up. Of course, applicants must be willing to relocate to Mars. There is absolutely no way for potential employees to deal with such a long commute.
Mars Colony posters for NASA job openings are available from the NASA website. They are free to download and admire as those looking for work may consider one day expanding their job search a lot further than they have previously dreamed.
Proxima B plans are not yet in the works since the planet was only recently discovered, but scientists believe that the solar system of our nearest star, Proxima Centauri may have a Goldilocks planet, though no one knows for sure. According to CNN though, if Proxima B has an atmosphere, it is likely that surface temperatures there range from 86 to 104 degrees, which isn’t that different from earth. If these theories prove correct, exploration and colonization of Proxima B might be possibilities in the more distant future.
The new NASA job openings are coming, but there is still work to be done on the Mars colony project before this dream can become a reality. For that reason, NASA stops short of taking applications for Mars workers at this time. They do want people to start considering their job programs as a future option, though. After all, an idea like that would take a bit of getting used to.
As for Proxima B, that opportunity may really take a long time. At present, NASA has no practical way to get there in a reasonable time frame. Proxima B is 4.2 light years from the edge of our solar system, and while that isn’t far compared to other stars, it is far in terms of current space travel technology. It is, however, a reasonable goal to aim for in the future. Proxima B is, at least theoretically, very promising in terms of probable climate.
NASA job openings posters for the Mars colony, as well as the release of a whole lot of information about potential colonies, is intended to prepare the citizens of Earth. They want everyone to know the nearly unquestionable fact that these kinds of colonies are going to happen much sooner than most people would have guessed. NASA also wants people to know there will be job openings for those who want to work there, as well as homes and all other elements of human society.
Proxima B will, of course, have to wait but Musk has his sights set on Mars colonization soon.
NASA job openings for the Mars colony are about to become a reality, and Proxima B might not be as far away as it seems.
