There are many jobs at NASA and there are so many that you can go into almost anything that interests you. If you like science and math then you could be a rocket scientist. Y…ou could also of course be an Astronaut, but that takes a lot of training and there's still no real guarantee that you'll go into space. You could also work on the computer for the space shuttle if you like and know how to program.
