NASA to hire position to protect the planet from 'aliens'

The Small Magellanic Cloud is a small galaxy about 200,000 light-years way that orbits our own Milky Way spiral galaxy

Imagine telling your friends and family members you have the job title of "Planetary Protection Officer". Yes, that's a real government position that has recently been listed on the government job site, USA Jobs.

"Planetary protection is concerned with the avoidance of organic-constituent and biological contamination in human and robotic space exploration", the job posting reads.

NASA is willing to pay you six figures for its new "planetary protection officer" gig, where you will be protecting Earth from alien contamination and other secret space things.

The U.S. space agency is now hiring a planetary protection officer and is offering a salary between $124,406 and $187,000 per year. The space agency has outlined strict guidelines for its next hire.

The job is initially a three-year contract and may be further extended to two years.

Apple told investors that it expects to see somewhere between $49 billion and $52 billion in revenue next quarter. During the same quarter past year , Apple was able to sell some 9.95 million iPads.

The job description also indicates that the lucky person to be selected will enjoy a privileged position in the Office of Safety and Mission Assurance for Planetary Protection.

Catharine Conley now holds the position as NASA's planetary protection officer.

The national space agency NASA is looking to for either a USA citizen or national to fill their position of Planetary Protection Officer, aka the protector of all humankind. You see, most alien life, we've predicted, may exist is microorganisms - and nobody has any idea what alien bacteria might do to humans. After all, protecting the planet isn't so cut-and-dry.

Candidates must also have expertise on planetary protection: "This includes demonstrated technical expertise to independently form technically sound judgments and evaluations in considerably complex situations". Whoever is hired also could be subjected to a one-year probationary period.

Applications are on till August 14, so go ahead and take the chance to save the world, literally.
