NASA and private aerospace companies are in such need of workers between 2013 – 2023, that NASA created a Public Service Announcement for employee recruitment, shown before ST:ID, Stare Trek: Into Darkness. At the sae time, 80,000 individuals volunteered for the One Way Ticket to Mars program, which will kickstart the Mission to Mars colonization program. Volunteers will not be returning to Earth, but they seem excited to live their lives in a Martian experiment. They certainly will be making history.
— While some political voices shout that NASA is dead and private space companies are not launching anything into space, many news media reports and recent video footage – as well as eyewitness accounts – tell us otherwise. The combined deadline to Mars landing among government and private concerns has been pushed to an earlier date more than once. The original date was sometime in 2033, pushed forward to 2023. One company plans a 2018 journey and the Google LunarX program already has Lunar Landers ready to take to the moon in 2013.
Our space program has become a partnership among government and private programs and if NASA does fall out of the mix, mix, many of the agencies astronauts and executives are already attached to Golden Spike company, which looks to become the most active in aerospace exploration and business in the 2010s. Jim Lovell of Apollo 13 is with them, but so is Michael Okuda, who has been a designer for Star Trek®. The entire coterie of Golden Spike looks like a spacefarings Hall of Fame!
The US combined space programs are alive and need workers.
— Aerospace companies and NASA are working on ways of managing and preventing damage that occurs in the wake of super-powerful solar flares, geomagnetic storms, and asteroid impacts to the moon and Earth. These intiatives and work projects require the expertise of skilled engineers and technicians; so all of the work of space agencies does not occur in outer space. America is in needs of thousands of engineers in a number of fields, from aerospace, energy, and health to IT and manufacturing, whereas, new university graduates are more likely to be credentialed in business.
The most lucrative and jobs-filled training areas to seek for study at the college and university level, or in technical schools includes Healthcare, Engineering, Technologies, and Computers/Information Technology. The most jobs will be advertised in these fields from 2013 – 2023. Hundreds of Spring 2013 college graduates are unemployed because they chose fields that currently demand few workers.
Work with your college counselor as soon as you enter post-secondary education and plan for a job that will be open in four or five years.
