(NBC) –  After watching “Guardians of the Galaxy”, a nine-year-old boy sent a letter to NASA asking them for a job.

Young Jack Davis of New Jersey applied to be a Planetary Protection Officer.  A position preventing possible contamination from samples brought from space.

The fourth-grader wrote, “I am young so I can learn to think like an alien.” He also said he’s qualified because his sister already thinks he’s an alien.

NASA wrote back and told Davis that if he does well in school he may get to work for them someday. The Planetary Science Director told Davis, “We are always looking for bright future scientists and engineers to help us.”
