“Guardians Of The Galaxy”

Another Summer Sunday and my granddaughter has a deal for me…..a coupon book in support of the High school band…of course I’m in.

How many have the movie “Guardians of the Galaxy”?

Guess what…if you liked the movies and would like to be a “super hero” then NASA has a job for you….

Want to become a Jedi? This is probably as close as you could possibly get: NASA is looking for someone to protect Earth and other planets in our known universe. The agency is accepting applications for the full-time post of “planetary protection officer,” a position created after the signing of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty—which sought to keep the peace in space by, among other things, barring countries from sending weapons of mass destruction to other planets. The main job of the planetary protection officer, however, isn’t to search the stars for bombs. Rather, the goal is to keep earthlings from contaminating space and returning spaceships from contaminating Earth, per Business Insider.

It’s a pretty sweet gig, and not just because it comes with a salary ranging from $124,406 to $187,000 a year. The three-year appointment (with a possible two-year extension) involves traveling the world visiting space centers and the rovers and other equipment each plans to send to space. Nabbing one of only two such full-time posts on the planet won’t be easy, though. NASA is looking for a candidate with an advanced degree in physical science, engineering, or mathematics, plus “demonstrated experience planning, executing, or overseeing elements of space programs of national significance” and “demonstrated skills in diplomacy.” Think you’ve got the right stuff? Applications will be accepted until Aug. 14.

Since I am a nerd…I will apply for the gig….I have degrees in international relations and conflict management and resolution……both could be very useful in dealing with the prospects of meeting and dealing with our alien brothers and visitors…..as well as those Earthers that plan something nefarious for the space around us.

  1. You had better delete your blog before sending in that application, chuq! 🙂
    Seriously though, if they are really employing people to do this, then NASA must have too much money. Time to cut their budget, I reckon.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Nope they need people that can think on the feet….NASA is part of the defense budget then they are always having too much money…LOL chuq

  2. I recommend Donald the Ignorant! Just flashing his photo, and sending recordings of his harangues would surely scare Intelligent Life away–even light years out!

    1. Those travelers are already avoiding the planet…in the Travelers Guide To The Milky Way” already has it posted that this sector is the “ghetto” of the universe…LOL chuq
