After an extensive search, NASA has chosen the potential group of astronauts who may participate in future missions throughout the solar system. Eight candidates, four men and four women, who will receive training to explore low Earth orbit, travel to an asteroid or step on Mars for the first time.

Candidates come from the second highest number of requests (more than 6,000) that NASA has ever received. The select group will receive a wide range of technical training in space centers worldwide.

Who are they?

Josh A. Cassada, 39 years old, (White Bear Lake, Minnesota). Co-founder and director of Quantum Opus, a company of experimental physics.

These new applicants to astronauts will begin their training at Johnson Space Center of NASA in Houston in August.
