Has the faint glow of space drawn your gaze and awe endlessly, just like the great wanderers of time immemorial? Do you know why July 20, 1969 is a pivotal moment in human history? Have you watched Chris Hadfield’s “Space Oddity” music video just a few too many times? If you answered yes to all of those questions, then your time has finally come.

NASA has announced that they are accepting applications for a new generation of cosmic explorers on December 14. Take this quiz to see if you might qualify to be one of the first to step on Mars by 2030.

P.S. There is no age limit.
