Real life Men In Black or what? This is pretty interesting. NASA has announced a job opening for a role as their Planetary Protection Officer. According to MSN, “The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is currently looking for someone with a secret security clearance to ensure alien life, or “organic-constituent and biological contamination” doesn’t make it’s way back in a space ship.”
Judging by the job requirements on the NASA website you would need some great diplomacy skills and a few other technical requirements:
1. Advanced knowledge of Planetary Protection, its requirements and mission categories. This includes demonstrated technical expertise to independently form technically sound judgments and evaluations in considerably complex situations.
2. Demonstrated experience planning, executing, or overseeing elements of space programs of national significance. These elements include but are not limited to developing requirements, performing technical assessments, and preparing recommendations to leadership.
3. Demonstrated skills in diplomacy that resulted in win-win solutions during extremely difficult and complex multilateral discussions. This includes building coalitions amongst organizations to achieve common goals.
I wonder if they supply you with the little pen that makes people forget things or some sort of ray gun in case you have to battle against real-life aliens. In all seriousness, I don’t know if any of us know anyone who meets these requirements but when the job position is filled I would love to meet the man or woman who gets hired!
