Fourth-grader Jack Davis is a 9-year-old alien enthusiast from New Jersey sent a handwritten letter to NASA asking to be considered for a job working with astronauts.
In the letter he asks to apply for a planetary protection officer position at NASA. He writes in the letter that despite his young age, he thinks he would be "fit for the job!
He said one of the reasons is his sister thinks he's an alien! He then ends the letter stating the other attributes that would make him perfect for the position, such as his "great" video game skills and his youth, which will make it easy to "learn to think like an alien." He then signs the letter, "Jack, Guardian of the Galaxy."
The letter was mailed to the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, Davis said. NASA also called Jack Friday morning to thank him for applying.
