For all those of you as kids who dreamed about going into space and becoming an astronaut now is your chance. The Discovery Channel is pulling out all the stops with a new reality show called "Who want's to be an Astronaut?" I will tell you right now I would never, ever I am terrified about going into space so hopefully earth will never lose it's gravity. It is a crazy irrational feat that I have had as a kid and I have no idea why.

Anyway the producers of the show are looking for average people to apply and compete for the ultimate spot to actually fly into space. The winner will get a seat on a flight to the International Space Station. This is something only a handful of people in the world have ever experienced and you could be next.

All you have to do is fill out the application and upload two photos of yourself (no hats, or sunglasses) and submit a short video of yourself. This video is where you can really let your personality shine. Make sure to have everything ready to go because you must complete the application in one sitting. And there you go.

There are no restrictions as far as educational level you do not need to be a rocket scientist or anything but you do need to be in good shape with height and weight proportionate. You are going to be doing actual astronaut duties so you need to be in top physical condition and also be 18+ years old.  I am sure there is a laundry list of other conditions which you will find out after you apply. It would be awesome if someone from the Northland got on the show so if you would like more information or to apply click on the Discovery Channel website.
