(CNN)A fourth-grader's cover letter grabbed NASA's attention in the search for the next real-life guardian of the planet.

Give him the job.
He will be able to protect us from aliens (space aliens, not Mexican illegal aliens) as well as anyone else.
For once the twitter thread is almost all positive responses.
A couple of jerks but even those are pretty tame by Twitter standards.
It might be moderated but still...
The kid doesn’t mention the fake “threat” of Global Warming anywhere in his letter. Smart kid. I say hire him.
While we're at it, we might need a snail goddess or a unicorn whisperer. It's only 127K each, and taxpayers can afford it.
Will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign, domestic and extra-terrestrian.
“This week, the space agency began looking for its new planetary protection officer, someone capable of guarding the planet from “microbial contamination from other planets.”
Its both funny and scary that the person they are looking for to protect us from microbial contamination from other planets is someone without any training or experience in microbiology or ANY biological science. Believe it or not here is what they want “ Degree: physical science, engineering, or mathematics that included 24 semester hours in physical science and/or related engineering science such as mechanics, dynamics, properties of materials, and electronics”
