The Application Process
The initial application process for Space for Humanity’s Citizen Astronaut Program is simple. All you need to do is upload a short video of no more than three minutes. Use the video to introduce yourself and say why you would like to go to space. Please remember to include your full name and your country of origin.
Other things you may want to consider for the video are as follows:
- Why should Space for Humanity select you for the Citizen Astronaut Program?
- How would you want to make a difference in your community when you return from space? How will you inspire others through your journey?
- What are your ideas for how you will use this opportunity to inspire others? These ideas can be broad and conceptual — don’t sweat the details! The point at this stage is simply to share your passion.
- Once you have uploaded your video, share it on social media.
Should your video application be successful, you will be invited to a series of interviews to determine your suitability for the program. At this time, you will be asked to give considered responses to your ideas about how you will use the Citizen Astronaut Program to inspire others and how you would work as an ambassador for Space for Humanity afterwards.
If selected, your individual social-impact project will be developed and refined during the training program, along with a team of mentors, global executives, fellow ambassadors, and advisors to help guide you.
Once commercial space or near-space seats are available, you will undergo basic commercial crew training. The costs for your spaceflight are covered, in return you will act as a Space for Humanity ambassador after your flight.
When you return, Space for humanity will assist in the implementation of your ambassador program by providing ongoing resources, training, and access to our world-class team.
