Ashley May presents a curious report that you could apply for the job of the NASA Planetary Protection Officer. NASA is currently looking for someone with a secret security clearance to ensure alien life, or organic-constituent and biological contamination does not t make it back in a space ship. More than that, this person is responsible for the leadership of the NASA planetary protection capability, maintenance of planetary protection policies, and oversight of their implementation by NASA space flight missions, according to the job listing.

Candidates must have advanced knowledge of Planetary Protection, experience overseeing nationally significant space programs and have demonstrated skills in diplomacy that resulted in win-win solutions during extremely difficult and complex multilateral discussion. After all, protecting the planet is sure to present challenges.

The name of whomever is chosen may never see the light of day for the time being ....it is top secret ...??
