Job Overview
Summary
About the Agency

This position is assigned to Office of Safety and Mission Assurance for Planetary Protection. Planetary protection is concerned with the avoidance of organic-constituent and biological contamination in human and robotic space exploration. NASA maintains policies for planetary protection applicable to all space flight missions that may intentionally or unintentionally carry Earth organisms and organic constituents to the planets or other solar system bodies, and any mission employing spacecraft, which are intended to return to Earth and its biosphere with samples from extraterrestrial targets of exploration. This policy is based on federal requirements and international treaties and agreements.

Current Agency policy requires the SL appointments be time-limited. The initial appointment will be for 3 years, with the possibility of extending for an additional 2 years. The selectee for this position will receive a temporary promotion. Employee will then return to a grade level no lower than the grade previously held at the home center.

The PPO also supports the Safety and Mission Assurance (SMA) Technical Authority and serves as a principal advisory resource for the Chief, SMA and other senior officials on matters pertaining to planetary protection. The PPO is the Agency's focal point for interactions with external organizations on matters related to planetary protection. Primarily the Planetary Protection Officer performs the following:

I haven't read the original job overview and only skimmed what was posted here, but I think I remember that Planetary Protection works more in the opposite way, trying not contaminate other planets.

WHERE does it say ANYTHING About ALIENS in the job description?

This is about stopping the COSMIC LITTERBUGS from polluting other planets (of which NASA is the biggest offender :P )

Remember when NASA blew up that comet?  Comet Tempel 1?  ""We hit it just exactly where we wanted to," said an ecstatic Dr Don Yeomans, a Nasa mission scientist... "The impact was bigger than I expected, and bigger than most of us expected. We've got all the data we could possibly ask for." ...

Agency staff working on the $333 Million mission cheered, clapped and hugged when the first pictures of the impact came through to the control room at Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California...

Two stages: Preliminary data indicated two successive flashes.

"What you see is something really surprising. First, there is a small flash, then there's a delay, then there's a big flash and the whole thing breaks loose. We may have been able to detect some structural response to the impact," mission co-investigator Pete Shultz said.... "

Sigh...typical bait and switch tactics from More Stupid Numbnuts...  ::)

Z, since NASA is just a dog and pony show, that could explain all those clowns depicted in the above pics; no circus sideshow is complete without clowns

Boy Applies For NASA’s Planetary Protector Job In The Most Adorable Way
“I am young, so I can learn to think like an Alien.”
By Lee Moran

This fourth grader’s job application letter to NASA is something to phone home about.

Nine-year-old Jack Davis laid out exactly why he believes he’s perfect to take on the space agency’s recently advertised role of Planetary Protection Officer in an adorable handwritten letter.

And with his cute claim that he’s still young enough to “learn to think like an Alien,” his sweet appeal is now going viral:

My friend's son wrote a letter to NASA




“One of the reasons is my sister says I am an alien also,” he wrote, explaining his qualifications for the six-digit-salaried position which entails stopping alien life forces (of all sizes) from spreading during space travel.

The youngster boasted about seeing “almost all the space and alien movies I can see” and signed off as “Jack Davis, Guardian of the Galaxy, Fourth Grade.”

Reddit user millamber, a friend of one of his parents, shared a snap of the note to the site on Thursday. It’s not clear where Davis is located, and some social media users have questioned if the note is even genuine. HuffPost has reached out for further comment.

The photograph is, however, proving exceptionally popular online ― with many Redditors suggesting that Davis may indeed be the best person for the job:

This is a child who still dreams. May he hang on to that innocence as long as he can.
