NASA released its Mars colonizing plan in 2015
US space agency NASA has released a series of retro recruitment posters announcing the potential vacancies that may arise in Mars once it starts its mission to colonize Mars reported CNN.
The posters contain advertisement seeking workers for various positions that NASA may require in the future. Such posters were first released in 2009 for an exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor’s Complex in Florida. Vacancies advertised in the posters include teachers, surveyors, and farmers among various other potential jobs.
“Have you ever asked the question, what is out there? So have we! That curiosity leads us to explore new places like Mars and its moons, Phobos, and Deimos. Just what lies beyond the next valley, canyon, crater or hill is something we want to discover with rovers and with humans one day too,” reads one poster.
“Night owls welcome! If you lived on Mars’ moon Phobos, you’d have an office with a view, mining for resources with Mars in the night sky. Settlers below on Mars would see Phobos rise and set not once, but twice in one day!,” reads another.
The posters give people a chance to imagine how life on Mars will look like. Earlier, NASA had used similar kind of posters for promoting space tourism.
NASA released its strategy for Mars colonization in 2015. The plan does not explain the functioning of colonies until 2030.
