Helping NASA sterilize Mars rovers and possibly help them find life in Martian water - changes the history of our species. If that isn’t enough reason….What if the technology developed for this competition to sterilize rovers, could them be used to sterilize other things…..like hospital rooms here on earth? That tech might save millions of lives. This is a badass challenge. We need to get it Sponsored and Shaped…let’s make it happen!
According to PopularScience, learning to farm on Mars could save agriculture on Earth. But first, someone must develop a tech that will properly sterilize Mars rovers without damaging any electronics, instruments, or function. Helping NASA find a solution may help us find new life on Mars, save agriculture on Earth & beyond!
NASA recently posted a job vacancy for a planetary protection officer. Warding off aliens (tiny microbes from Space) and protecting other planets from Earth-based bacteria is a task that has intrigued the masses, including 9-year-old Jack Davis.
"Dear NASA, My name is Jack Davis and I would like to apply for the planetary protection officer job. I may be nine but I think I would be fit for the job," Jack wrote.
Jack may not have the credentials or pedigree to be employed with NASA just yet. However, in the meantime, he is perfectly qualified to be apart of the solution that helps NASA fight off the alien contamination that is preventing further discovery in space.
