There is a new job at NASA. It is for a Planetary Protection Officer (PPO). He or she will make sure no alien life comes to Earth after astronauts come back. The job is on the usajobs.gov website. The PPO will get paid up to $187,000 a year. It is for three to five years. NASA only has two PPOs. It is only for U.S. citizens.

People must be well qualified. They must have a degree in science, engineering or maths. People need experience in planning and managing important space programs. Finally, people need skills that lead to "win-win solutions". The new PPO will help future NASA missions. One of these is to Jupiter to search for alien life.
