NASA Wants to Pay You to Isolate on Fake Mars for 8 Months

The successful applicants will spent eight months in isolation with a small international crew in Moscow, Russia. The aim of this “analog mission” is to help NASA learn more about the physical and psychological impact that confinement and isolation has on humans. The research conducted during this time will include performing robotic operations as well as various tasks using virtual reality.

In addition to being willing to spend eight months on a fake mission, applicants must also meet the following requirements:

  • U.S. citizenship
  • Between the ages of 30-55
  • Proficient in both Russian and English languages.
  • Have a M.S., PhD., M.D. or completion of military officer training. (Though participants with a Bachelor’s degree and other certain qualifications—e.g., relevant additional education, military, or professional experience—may be considered as well.)
