Boy, 9, wants to be NASA’s ‘planetary protection officer’
TRENTON | A 9-year-old New
Jersey boy who describes himself as a “Guardian of the Galaxy” is hoping to add the real-life NASA title “Planetary Protection Officer” to his resume.
NASA says it received an application for the position from fourthgrader Jack Davis, who touted his expertise in space-themed movies.
In a letter, Jack acknowledged his youth but said that will make it easier for him to think like an alien.
Jack received a letter and a phone call from NASA officials thanking him for his interest and encouraging him to study hard so he can one day join them at the agency.
