Astronaut jobs are expected to grow for the second consecutive year, according to a new survey from CareerBuilder, which is also the research arm of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
According to CareerBuilder’s latest annual report on the job market in January, the number of Astronauts working in NASA’s Commercial Crew program and NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory missions jumped by 5 percent from last year to 2,854 and 1,921, respectively.NASA is looking to hire about 200 astronauts for its two commercial Crew flights, but the agency recently said that it would not use its funding to build a full-scale station on the International Space Station.
While the report noted that the number “has been trending upward for several years,” it said that the jobs market has been in flux for years.
The report noted a number of factors that could be contributing to this:”The last several years have seen a significant increase in the number and quality of jobs in the aerospace and defense industries, but many factors have contributed to this trend,” said the report.
“For instance, the economic downturn has impacted demand for STEM graduates, and the current administration has cut funding for research and development, which has impacted STEM jobs.
As a result, many aerospace jobs have been eliminated in recent years.”
The study noted that in addition to the growth in aerospace jobs, “a number of other areas have experienced strong job growth in recent months.
In particular, the economy has been adding jobs, with a surge in hiring in recent weeks.
This is partly attributable to a recent surge in college students entering STEM careers, as well as the creation of thousands of jobs for the construction industry.”
The number of jobs is expected to remain steady through 2024, the report said.
However, it added that the industry could experience an additional 3 million jobs lost over the next decade.
“Job losses will increase over the course of the next few years, as the number, quality and pay of jobs remain low,” it wrote.
“We do not expect the industry to experience a significant downturn in the coming years.”NASA and the U,S.
Air Force are in negotiations with Boeing to provide a Commercial Crew launch service, which would be the first flight for the company’s CST-100 spacecraft, which will launch from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The contract is valued at $7.9 billion.
