If you are interested in a trip to the universe and can live peacefully under pressure and pressure gravity, then you can become part of the upcoming space mission of the European Space Agency (ESA). ESA has launched a campaign to recruit new astronauts after 11 years, in which priority is being given to women and differently abled. Provided that the candidates meet the standards of the agency.

This year, ESA will not only recruit women astronauts but will also give a chance of space travel. European Space Agency Director General Jane Warner said, 'We have to go to the Moon and Mars. For this, we need better astronauts in future. In this direction, we need to think on a wider scale than we have ever thought before."

Of the approximately 560 people who go to space, only 65 are women and 51 of them are Americans. ESA has so far sent only two women (Claudie Hagner and Samantha Christophe) to space. Warner said that now efforts are being made to correct this imbalance.

The ESA says that the time has come to take the Divyang into space as well. They will be made part of this under the Parastronet Fibility Project. For the first time any space agency has started the application process for Divyang astronauts.

David Parker, the agency's director of human and robotic exploration, said, 'Any work requires representation of every part and section of society. Failure to do so is a matter of concern. We think very seriously in this regard. The diversity in ESA not only speaks of the birth, age, background or gender of our astronauts but now the line will also include physically disabled people.
