Here’s NASA’s Official ‘Journey to Mars’ Posters Promoting Careers on Mars

When NASA eventually sends explorers to Mars they will need people with the right skills (and a desire to live on a yet uninhabited planet) to have a successful mission. To recruit the people with the right stuff NASA released a series of Mars Explorers Wanted posters. The posters were first commissioned for an exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor’s Complex in 2009 and is now free to download and use as you wish from the official NASA Mars Explorers Wanted¬†page.

Would you go to work on Mars? And live there?
