"In the future, Mars will need all kinds of explorers, farmers, surveyors, teachers . . . but most of all YOU!"
In a tongue-in-cheek way of promoting its "Journey to Mars," NASA has released a series of WWII propaganda-styled posters. The posters advertise for all sorts of job positions for those willing to leave Earth behind for the red planet.
But don't get your hopes up: a manned mission to Mars won't happen until the 2030s, and that can always be delayed.
The first of the three steps that NASA has laid out in its Journey to Mars has already begun, where scientists are studying human health in microgravity on board the International Space Station. The second and third steps will have NASA conduct operations in deep space to develop capabilities and technology required for long distance space travel and landing on Mars or its moons.
