The Canadian Space Agency is accepting applications for two astronaut positions until Aug. 15, 2016. Jacob Brown a Bachelor of Computer Science graduate from Carleton University has applied to become an Astronaut.
“I’ve always wanted to fly. Originally, my goal as child was to be pilot. As I got older and learned more about space, I thought, ‘You know what? Astronaut would be something that would be even more incredible,'” he recalled. “I’ve been gearing my education as well as how I go about life in that direction.”
Brown says he most wants to have the opportunity to be part of the advancement of space technology and science. But he also thinks a chance to pilot a spacecraft and snap a picture of Earth from the International Space Station would be “incredible.”
