Got Physics? Planetary Protection Officer Position Open at NASA.

Who says science is boring?  If you have an advanced degree in physics, this job just may be for you:  

Planetary Protection Officer at NASA.

Job responsibility?  

To ascertain that Earth's space travel does not contaminate outer space, and conversely to insure any celestial bodies do not contaminate Earth.

How Cool is That?  A real life Defender of Earth!  And a nice six figure salary - up to $287,000 - plus benefits, to boot.

And to think this job was created when the United States ratified the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 ... yes, 50 years ago.  Click on the Business Insider post below for more information.
