United States space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is offering an exciting job opportunity that requires a "Planetary Protection Officer" who can save our planet Earth from aliens. The space agency has posted a listing on the official USA government job board, seeking a "Planetary Protection Officer". Yes, alien organisms or contamination, to some extent alien life, but nothing as potshots like that of "Independence Day". The Planetary Protection Officer will have the task of ensuring that the NASA members are doing everything in their power to follow those rules. The officer will actually be responsible for helping to prevent NASA from destroying other worlds just as much as they are protecting the Earth. "Planetary protection is concerned with the avoidance of organic-constituent and biological contamination in human and robotic space exploration", the Space agency said in its description. In other words, making sure unwanted alien organisms and other outer-space materials stay away from Earth. "This policy is based on federal requirements and global treaties and agreements". The US signed and ratified this treaty in 1967.

Anyone can apply for this full-time job, but be prepared for frequent travel and a commitment of at least three years, including one year of probation.

The famous space agency are now on the look out for a Planetary Protection Officer and it turns out it truly is as sci-fi as it sounds.
