Where would I begin if i wanted a job in the CSA or as an astronaut?

    Hi everyone, I know this may seem a little impossible but I have always dreamed of working for someone like the Canadian Space Agency, becoming an astronaut, or even working in the ISS.

    I'm currently studying mechanical engineering and am about to head into my 3rd year.

    How would I go about obtaining a career in this field?

    Have you tried contacting the Canadian Space Agency for advice? I'm sure they are interested in talking to students who have expressed an interest in working for their agency.

    Chris Hadfield wrote a very good book about this ("Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth").
