Career Astronaut Competition

in collaboration with AdvancingX, Greek NewSpace Society gives more than
700,000 Greek citizens the opportunity to join the Career Astronaut Competition.

WHAT

​In the competition, Career Astronaut Candidates are assigned to teams using advanced machine learning software developed by BMC with high performance team algorithms and predictive analytics developed by AdvancingX. As candidates move forward through the competition, they will be faced with several carefully designed challenges to help identify and measure team cognitive functional characteristics capable of taking on extreme environment circumstances like those found in space. Challenges include social engagements, survival, and simulated zero gravity tasks designed to prepare Career Astronauts to work together as a team.

WHO

Candidates with a focus in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) will be considered to participate. When selected as a Career Astronaut Candidate, you will be challenged both as an individual and as a valued member on multiple teams designed to take on the challenges of extreme environment situations that will take you deep into extinct lava tunnels, remote research labs, and deep underwater space vehicle mock-ups. You will learn team skills, survival strategies, and astronaut skills that will prepare you for missions to suborbital space, the moon, Mars and beyond.

HOW

If you want to become an astronaut and have experience in space training, potential space travel and space related career opportunities, join the Career Astronaut Competition today!
