    Do they issue a green power ring to the person hired? In Brightest Day, In Darkest Night...

    I'm telling you . . . I could make that suit work. Or that whole "Men in Black" look. Or maybe I'd just give the costume design job to Stan Lee.

    The media are having fun with this one, but the details are actually quite reasonable.

    NASA's Office of Planetary Protection has a very informative website here:

    https://planetaryprotection.nasa.gov/about

    The job announcement is here:

    https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/474414000

    https://astrobiology.nasa.gov/careers-employment/nasa-hq-planetary-protection-officer/

    Planetary Protection seems to involve efforts to make sure that spacecraft do not carry Earth microorganisms to other planets, contaminating them. And conversely, making sure that spacecraft returning samples to Earth from other planets aren't carrying potentially dangerous extraterrestrial life, some analogue of our microorganisms. They say that NASA is obligated to do this due to federal requirements and international treaties.

    It seems to me that the people most suited to this work might be microbiologists.

    Yeah, but that's just what they tell the public . . . . . . . You can forward my mail to Area 51!

    I know what the government's secret plans are because I worked at Area 102. You haven't heard of it because it's twice as secret.

    I just traded my 2007 Rubicon for a 2011 Wrangler Sport. I've been a Jeep kid for years.
