If social distancing has not gradually eliminated you, you may be exactly the type of person that NASA is looking for for its upcoming simulation.
Thanks to proximity and relatively similar conditions to Earth, Mars has long been on the list of planets that humans strive to visit, if not colonize. At the same time, since the birth of the Space Force, the United States has also expressed its intentions to return to the moon. Working towards these two goals, NASA is now recruiting people for an isolation simulation, in which a crew of alleged spacecraft navigators will spend eight months locked in a fake spaceship, using virtual reality and performing several assigned tasks. In particular, they are looking for candidates between the ages of 30 and 55 who are fluent in English and Russian – since the simulation will take place in Moscow – and must have at least a university degree or have completed the training of a military officer. Of course, even those selected will be financially compensated. According to NASA, “research will be conducted to study the effects of isolation and confinement as participants work to successfully complete their simulated space mission.”
