Not every flight director is a legend, but some are. Take Eugene Kranz, for example. His heroic efforts saved the Apollo 13 mission from disaster. He also was an aerospace engineer, fighter pilot in the Korean War, and as Chief Flight Director, he directed missions from the Gemini and Apollo programs, including the first lunar landing mission, Apollo 11.

He was also known for his white vests, all hand made by his wife Marta. One of those vests is now hanging in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

Flight directors, like Kranz, are responsible for leading teams of flight controllers, research and engineering experts, and support personnel around the world, and making the real-time decisions critical to keeping NASA astronauts safe in space.

Currently, NASA is looking for leaders for one of the best jobs on Earth for human spaceflight – including missions to the Moon – the position of flight director in mission control at the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. Today is the deadline for applications. Apply today!

Those chosen as NASA flight directors will lead human spaceflight missions to the International Space Station, as American astronauts once again are launching on American rockets and spacecraft from American soil to the orbiting laboratory.

不是每一个飞行指挥都是传奇,但有些是。以尤金·克兰茨为例。他的英勇努力使阿波罗13号任务免于灾难。他还是一名航天工程师,朝鲜战争中的战斗机飞行员,作为首席飞行指挥,他指挥了双子座阿波罗计划的任务,包括首次登月任务阿波罗11号

他还以他的白色背心而闻名,所有背心都是他的妻子玛尔塔手工制作的。其中一件背心现在悬挂在史密森航空航天博物馆(Smithsonian Air and Space Museum)。

像克兰兹这样的飞行指挥,负责领导由飞行控制人员、研究和工程专家以及世界各地的支持人员组成的团队,并做出对确保NASA宇航员太空中的安全至关重要的实时决策。

目前,美国宇航局正在物色对人类航天飞行(包括登月任务)来说是地球上最好的工作之一的领导职位,即位于休斯顿的约翰逊航天中心任务控制中心的飞行指挥。今天是申请的截止日期。立即申请!

那些被选为美国宇航局飞行指挥的人将领导飞往国际空间站的载人航天任务,美国宇航员将再次用美国火箭航天器从美国本土发射到轨道实验室。
