In time for the 10th anniversary of people living aboard the International Space Station, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is introducing new projects to keep students dreaming of walking in space.

Living on the moon may be one of the next challenges, and NASA is offering paid internships to students who can turn up with a good idea on how human life on the moon would be possible.

The 2010 NASA Moon Work engineering design contest is challenging engineering college students to design tools or instruments that would aid astronauts live and work on the moon.
The winners will be offered an internship with the NASA Exploration Technology Development Program, which is functioning on technologies to help future NASA human exploration missions

Another, slightly less threatening contest is being offered to 350 students from middle school to college. They will pair up into 37 teams nationwide to build a rocket that can launch a mile into the air, while having a functioning science payload.
