Astronaut Selection 2021

For the first time in 11 years, the European Space Agency will again recruit astronauts. ESA is seeking candidates with a Master’s degree (or higher) and a minimum of three years’ experience in natural science, medicine, engineering, mathematics or computer science.

Ambassadors of humanity and pioneers of space exploration, astronauts make us dream and inspire us. Above all, they are also women and men who are motivated and passionate about space and their work. Join them!

Applications from all qualified candidates, irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, beliefs, age, or other characteristics, are welcome. ESA is also issuing a special call for candidates with physical disabilities to apply to its astronaut reserve for its parastronaut project.

 

Applications open 31 March 2021.
