Weird Job Opportunity: Get Paid to Eat Space Food for Four Months

By February 26, 2012

Astronaut Ice Cream Space... the final frontier.

But before anyone can go there, some poor schleps back at home have to practice living in space for a while and eating space food -- and if that sounds like something you've always wanted to do, here's your chance.

NASA is looking for people willing to live in astronaut conditions -- minus the actual space, weightlessness and such -- and eat astronaut food for several months.

You'll actually get paid for this, too: $5,000, plus round-trip airfare to Hawaii, where the four-month experiment will be conducted, according to Forbes.

Candidates need a bachelor's degree in engineering, biological or physical sciences, mathematics, or computer science, a "willingness and ability to eat a wide range of foods" and "a normal sense of taste and smell."

Interested? The details are online here -- but act fast. The deadline to apply is Wednesday.
