Anyone here trying to become an astronaut? I've always wondered what working in space would be like and how bright the stars would shine. Anyone else/

Are you kidding?

Problem is that you need a PhD at least. Even for maintenance-level work. Things will change as space businesses develop, but I'm afraid the ones to take those jobs will be our kids or grandchildren at worst.

Too early to explore space, just in time to buy drugs off the internet and all that jazz.

Considering how lenses work (referring to your eyes mostly) and how bright the Earth, moon, and sun would be, chances are that they'd be about the same level of brightness as they would be otherwise. Sorry to crush your dreams.

These days, to be an astronaut, you have to be a fucking fighter pilot with a PhD in astrophysics or something. The reqs are insane.
