European Space Agency to announce recruitment of new astronauts for the first time in 11 years


The European Space Agency (ESA) announced that new vacancies in the team of European astronauts will open for the first time in 11 years on March 31, 2021. Recruits will work alongside veterans, and Europe will enter a new era of space exploration.

More details on open vacancies will be announced on February 16 at a special press conference. But already now, the European space organization, according to a press release, “Strongly encourages women to apply as we strive to increase gender diversity in our ranks”

But space opens up not only for the weaker sex. Agency Director for Human and Robot Research David Parker said: “Diversity in ESA should be represented not only by the lineage, age, social status or gender of our astronauts, but also, possibly [людьми] with physical disabilities “… At first glance, this seems incompatible with the work of astronauts, but the idea of ​​open space for everyone is the future of human civilization.
