NASA Is Hiring Someone to Protect Earth from Aliens

Looking for a job? Want to save the planet from intergalactic threats? NASA has a job listing up for a "Planetary Protection Officer," and it basically sounds like protecting Earth from aliens.

The description reads, "Planetary protection is concerned with the avoidance of organic-constituent and biological contamination in human and robotic space exploration." You got that?

If this job sounds up your alley, qualifications include "advanced knowledge of Planetary Protection," "demonstrated experience planning, executing or overseeing elements of space programs of national significance," and "demonstrated skills in diplomacy." Your security clearance level will be "secret."

The location is the "United States" and the salary is not-too-shabby: $124,406 to $187,000. A small price to pay for keeping our planet safe from the rest of the galaxy.

Want to apply? God speed.
