Appalling. Despicable. Unacceptable. NASA should have been shut down decades ago. The federal government has no constitutional authority to explore anything. Elon Musk and SpaceX is already proving that this nonsense is handled better by the private sector (as always). Anyone who thinks it is "important" can throw their own money at Elon.

Sounds like a bargain. Hopefully, they are giving some good benefits with that job.

Who was that computer guy in the movie Independence Day that figured out how to blow up the alien space ship? He would be a good choice. I think he knows how to kill dinosaurs too.

Brings back memories of the Airstream decontamination unit that the astronauts stayed in for 88 hours after returning from the moon.

Cons want US taxpayers to pay Trump $400K to defend Putin against America.

Seen any aliens????

Sounds like he's doing a pretty good job, huh? Maybe we should give him a raise, and put him in charge of INS.

I think you may have fallen for a headline.

The job is for someone to help prevent alien contamination and us from contaminating alien planets. "Alien contamination" could be a harmful substance brought back in soil samples from Mars, or asteroids, for example. This persons job would be to develope safeguards for such samples to prevent contaminating anyone.

Trump is exactly the opposite of this guy - he defends America against real threats for cheap.

This is what happens when you are looking for a reason to be outraged but cannot read more than 2 lines...
