While persons of any age are able to apply as a prospective candidate for Pioneer City, applicants over the age of 56 are discouraged from applying due to the physical challenges of interplanetary travel. Space travel candidates selected in the past have ranged between the ages of 26 and 46, with the average age being 34.

The Pioneer City physical test includes the following specific requirements: distant and near visual acuity must be correctable to 20/20 in each eye, blood pressure is not to exceed 140/90 measured in a sitting position, and the candidate must have a standing height between 157.5 to 190.5 cm/62 and 75 inches.
