NASA Seeks Alien Busting Bureaucrat, 6-Figure Salary, Federal Benefits

Really? Oh, it’s real.

NASA is seeking a “Planetary Protection Officer,” pay scale & grade SL 00 (that’s an SES position), salary $124,406 to $187,000 per year.

“SES” means Senior Executive Service, the civilian equivalent to a general officer in the military. It’s not a red Swingline in the basement position.
