These are the following basic requirements:

1. You must be an US citizen (sorry for those non-American people).
2. You must a height of 5 feet and 17 inches to 6 feet.
3. Must have a resting blood pressure not to exceed 140/90.
4. 20/20 vision, though corrective eye surgeries like LASIK are allowed.

6. Three years of relevant professional experience or 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time in a jet aircraft.

The final selection is dependent on the completion of training including Space Station systems, robotics skills training, learning Russian, and aircraft flight readiness. Astronaut candidates earn between $64,000-141,000 per year

Application is until January 27, 2012 .
