HOUSTON - Space is the place where many haven't gone before, but that could change for some stellar civilians thanks to NASA.

The agency is looking to recruit people from diverse backgrounds to be astronauts for its journey to Mars.

In the wake of layoffs, NASA is hiring; seeking pilots, medical doctors, and engineers.

Salary can be up to a $100,000 a year, but there are a few basic requirements applicants must meet before suiting up.

Candidates must pass a long-duration space flight physical.  Doesn't seem like rocket science, but another requirement may be; a bachelor's degree in math, biological science, physical science, or engineering.

If you think your next career move could be out of this world, NASA will begin accepting applications December 14 until mid February.

Shoot for the stars.  You may just land on the moon, or in this case, Mars.
