A fourth grader from New Jersey was inspired to submit an application for an open position at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Jack Davis, the nine-year-old self-proclaimed “Guardian of the Galaxy” believes that he is fit to serve as Planetary Protection Officer for NASA.
In his handwritten application letter to the agency, Davis wrote, “I may be nine but I think I would be fit for the job. One of the reasons is my sister says I am an alien. Also, I have seen almost all the space movies and alien movies I can see. I have also seen the show Marvel Agents of Shield and hope to see the movie Men in Black.
Davis added that he is great at video games and he is young so he can learn to think like an alien.
His job application caught the attention of the Director of Planetary Science Division at NASA Jim Green, who sent a response letter.
Green wrote, “I hear you are a ‘Guardian of the Galaxy’ and interested in being a Planetary Protection Officer. That’s great! Our Planetary Protection Officer position is really cool and is very important work.”
Furthermore, Green told Davis that NASA is always looking for bright future scientists and engineers to help them. He encouraged the boy to “study hard and do well at school” and hoped to see the boy at the agency one of these days.
In a statement released on Friday, Green said, “At NASA, we love to teach kids about space and inspire them to be the next generation of explorers. Think of it as a gravity assist — a boost that may positively and forever change a person’s course in life, and our footprint in the universe.”
Davis also received a phone call from NASA’s Planetary Research Director Jonathan Rall, who congratulated him for being interested to serve as Planetary Protection Officer for the agency.
