Opening For Best Job Ever Pays You Six Figures To Defend Earth

Do you like your job? Do you think you’re getting paid enough? Do you have a job that your child self would think is SUPER KEWL? Have you always fantasized about dropping a Will Smith line from Independence Day in real life? Did you watch Guardians of the Galaxy and think to yourself, I could totally do that.

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those questions, I have some exciting news for you! Maybe. I can’t speak for you, but I’m pretty sure I’m not qualified for this gig.

According to Business Insider, NASA is currently looking for a Planetary Protection Officer to make sure us pesky humans don’t contaminate planets, moons, and objects in space – as well as prevent any alien microbes spreading to Earth. If you’ve watched War of the Worlds, you know that can be a whole thing.

The best part? This job pays up to $187,000. I’m assuming you have to pay for your own laser pistol, but I’m looking into it.

So what are the qualifications to be a real-life Space Lord? You need at least one year experience as a top-level civilian government employee, along with “advance knowledge” of planetary protection. I’m pretty sure that leaves me out. Oh well. There’s still my childhood dream of being Batman.

If you want to apply for the fun of it (or you’re legitimately a smart person), you can apply at USAJobs.gov through August 14th. Let me know if anyone needs a letter of recommendation. I got you.
