For the first time in 13 years, Japan’s space agency on Monday started recruiting new astronauts to carry out missions on the International Space Station and participate in a U.S.-led lunar exploration program.
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency aims to finish the recruitment drive by February 2023, accepting applications through March 4 next year. Applicants selected after initial screening will go through four rounds of examinations, according to JAXA.
