The American space agency NASA is currently hiring farmers who can bring their farming practices to Mars. In addition to farmers, NASA is also looking for teachers, explorers and surveyors.

This could be an ideal job for anyone, only if they do not mind taking a lousy commute to the outer space or do not question their chances of survival. The space agency has released a series of retro tourism-style recruitment posters to attract brave tourists and adventurers. According to reports, the posters were first created in 2009 for an exhibit at the Kennedy Center.

NASA describes the job as an opportunity to "hike the solar system's largest canyon, Valles Marineris on Mars. The person selected will get to see the blue sunsets and the two moons of the red planet - Phobos and Deimos.

The agency is also ready to hire people who love to wake up at night for a night shift on Phobos. People selected will also have an office of their own with an exquisite view. In addition, the "Journey to Mars" campaign ad further reads that people who settle below on Mars will get to Phobos rise not once, but twice a day.

The farmers will be allowed to grow all vegetables that they find in their summer garden, including peas, lettuce, tomatoes and radishes. In addition, they will be tasked with applying new ways of growing vegetables that could help feed the Mars explorer and keep them alive till the end of the mission.

Even though the space agency has already published the ads to recruit explorers and farmers for the mission, NASA is not planning to colonize the red planet before 2030. Therefore, there is still some time for the people to think about the opportunity and make up their mind to colonize the red planet.
