9-Year-Old Applies to Be NASA's Planetary Protection Officer

9-Year-Old Applies to Be NASA's Planetary Protection Officer

When US space agency NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) offered the opening of a "Planetary Protection Officer" vacancy, hardly they know it would cross the age limitations and get a zealous letter from a 9-year old kid.

Earlier this week, Recruiter reported about the space agency's recruitment drive for the rather unusual role of defending the Earth from alien life. Davis responded with a letter saying why he thought he would be a good candidate. Considering himself a Guardian of the Galaxy, Jack Davis asserted that despite his young age, he is fit for the job. "One of the reasons is my sister says I am an alien".

He said he had seen the show Marvel's Agents of Shield and hoped to see Men in Black in the future.

Une hausse de 4% en 2016, notamment dans les résidences principales — Cambriolages
Cela revient à dire qu'un logement est visité toutes les deux minutes, rapporte Le Figaro vendredi (édition abonnés ). Si cette hausse se poursuit, le chiffre des intrusions pourrait dépasser le pic de 2013.

This young space enthusiast also received a call from Jonathan Rall, NASA's planetary research director "to congratulate him on his interest in the position", the press release added.

"My sister says I am an alien also", Jack wrote in the hand-written letter dated August 3.

"I hear you are a Guardian of the Galaxy", he began. "Our planetary protection officer position is really cool and is very important work".
