      Yes Absolutely!

      There are lots of different types of space jobs in Europe, mostly for scientists and engineers, medical doctors and all sorts of things too.

      We don’t all get to go into space, but we all help out of missions.

      Most are space engineers.

      Then space scientists, space medicine, space finance, space administration/receptionists, space sports trainers, space lawyers, space insurance brokers, space business investors.

      And of course after being a space engineer, a space scientist, a doctor or a pilot you can apply to become an astronaut!
