NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine released a statement about the recruitment.

“For the handful of highly talented women and men we will hire to join our diverse astronaut corps, it’s an incredible time in human spaceflight to be an astronaut. We’re asking all eligible Americans if they have what it to takes to apply beginning March 2,” Bridenstine said.

The new class of astronauts will be a part of the Artemis Generation. In addition to being the next people to land on the moon, these astronauts could also become part of a truly groundbreaking mission since they could also become the first people to land on Mars.
