Watched the new Star Wars & now want to be an astronaut?

In A Galaxy Far, Far Away (WDEF) – Thousands of people swarmed theaters Thursday for the opening night of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

Maybe you were one of them?

Are you now thinking, "Hey, I could be an astronaut!"

NASA hopes you are!

Friday, NASA tweeted….


Yes, that’s right!

NASA is really taking applications for astronauts!

But before you get too excited, you have to have a bachelor’s degree in engineering, biological science, physical science, computer science or mathematics.

Plus, three years of experience in your degree related profession, at least 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft, and pass the NASA long-duration astronaut physical. 

But hey if Howard Wolowitz from "The Big Bang Theory" can do it, so can you!

(Also, remember News 12 Now if you do become an astronaut by giving us interviews and a percentage of your salary! May the Force be with you!)
