NASA posted a job for a planetary protection member motivated a fourth-grader to become
the upcoming real-life guardian of Earth. 
When NASA announced a job opening for “Planetary Protection Officer,” the space agency
has received countless applications, but none as creative and adorable as that of Jack Davis,
a 9-year-old boy who has all the abilities and qualifications to be a super “guardian of the
“My name is Jack Davis and I would like to apply for the planetary protection officer job,” the
9-year-old wrote in a letter. “I may be nine, but I think I would be fit for the job.”

“I have seen almost all the space and alien movies I can see,” he said. “I have also seen the
show Marvel Agents of Shield and hope to see the movie Men in Black.”
NASA responded to the letter and Jack was even phone called by the Planetary Research
Director (PRD) Jonathan Rall.
“It’s about protecting Earth from tiny microbes when we bring back samples from the Moon,
asteroids and Mars. It’s also about protecting other planets and moons from our germs as we
responsibly explore the Solar System,” Dr. James L Green, director of NASA’s Planetary
Science Division, inspiringly wrote.

NASA motivated Jack and everybody else to study hard and to one day become the real
“Guardians of the Galaxy.”

NASA’s planetary protection officer is in charge of protecting Earth from extraterrestrial
microbes carried in specimens or samples brought back from human and robotic space
missions to the asteroids, moon or Mars, according to the statement.

However Davis will have to wait a few years before he can work at NASA, the Liberty
Science Center (LSC) in New Jersey has requested him to be the official kid science adviser
at the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium (JCP).
