It’s now your time to become a hero, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is looking for someone who can protect Earth from alien.
The space agency offers 6-figure salary for the “one” who can defend the planet Earth from alien microbes.
NASA is hoping that they could find the right one who can fulfill the duty, as the space agency’s new Planetary Protection Officer (PPO).
Business Insider has reported that the gig, which is to be vacated by its incumbent, Catharine A. Conley, will pay up to $187,000 (over P9 million) plus benefits.
According to the job description on NASA’s ad, the PPO’s primary task is to make sure humans do not contaminate planets, moons and other objects during explorations.
Also, the selected individual will also help prevent possible alien microbes from spreading in our world.
Conley, holds this “significant” position since 2014, she confirmed that NASA is indeed looking for her replacement.
“This new job ad is a result of relocating the position I currently hold to the Office of Safety and Mission Assurance, which is an independent technical authority within NASA,” she told the news outlet.
Based on report, most space missions only have less than one-in-10,000 chance of contaminating an alien world, she said the job still demands a keen eye for detail.
“It’s a moderate level,” Conley described the difficulty of the job. “It’s not extremely careful, but it’s not extremely lax.”
For a long time now, NASA is one of the most respected organizations in the world, applicants and interested individual must possess a prerequisite background in physical science, engineering or mathematics.
Furthermore, they must also have a deep understanding of the planetary protection responsibilities, a bullet-proof record in “space programs of national significance” and a degree of diplomatic savvy “that resulted in win-win solutions during extremely difficult and complex multilateral discussions.”
