According to The Sacramento Bee, many astronauts have retired or quit with end of the space shuttle program. There used to be around 150 astronauts ready to go into space, and now that number is now down to 60. NASA is saying it will need another 55 to 60 astronauts to step up over the next five years in order to keep rolling.

So, now’s the time to polish off your resume and make another run at your childhood dream of blasting into space. I’d fly into space in a second for NASA.

What was a childhood career you wish you had?
