NASA accepts applications for pilot astronauts and mission specialist astronauts on a continuing basis. A selection board normally picks a group of about 15 to 25 candidates every two years. An applicant must be a U.S. citizen and must hold a bachelor's degree or higher in engineering, a biological science, a physical science, or mathematics. There is no age limit, but every candidate must pass the NASA space flight physical examination.
