Explorers Wanted: NASA to Hire More Artemis Generation Astronauts
Telecon Date: Wednesday, March 4, 2020 | 1:30 PT (4:30 ET)
Description: It’s been four years since the last astronaut application opportunity, and we are trying to get the word out as far and wide as possible about NASA’s campaign to recruit the next class of Artemis generation astronauts.

We would love your help to spread the word to U.S. citizens. To make it as easy as possible, we’ve created files (located under Presentation Resources) with the basics so you can share the news in a way that feels natural to you, whether that is an announcement during one of your events, an email or sharing a social post – even a retweet will be a great boost!

Speaker: Anne Roemer is the manager of astronaut selection at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. She oversees the selection of individuals who will pilot or travel in spacecraft, work in space or perform work related to human space exploration.
