Work for NASA? It’s child’s play

NASA’s search for a planetary protection officer has attracted an application from a nine-year-old New Jersey resident.

Earlier this week, Recruiter reported about the space agency’s recruitment drive for the rather unusual role of defending the Earth from alien life.

In an update, NASA revealed on its website that its job advert had attracted the attention of fourth grader Jack Davis, who wrote to the space agency expressing his interest in the role.

And it appears young Jack’s efforts were not in vain as he not only received a letter from NASA’s planetary science director Jim Green but also a phone call from NASA’s planetary research director, Jonathan Rall at NASA Headquarters in Washington, congratulating him on his interest in the position.

We wish Jack all the best. He apparently signed off his letter: Jack Davis, Guardian of the Galaxy. So whatever happens with his application, we’re sure our future is safe in his hands.
