My Dream Job: NASA PR Guy

New Planets

Meet Fomalhaut b a new planet outside of our solar system. It orbits the star Fomalhaut, of course.

Earlier today I was reminded of who has the coolest media relations job in Washington, D.C., if not the world, when I read that NASA had announced that the Hubble Space Telescope had captured the first image of a planet circling another star. In fact, according to the AP, NASA has now captured images of four planets, three of them orbiting the same star, and the fourth circling a different star.

So in my job, I speak to journalists about cell phones and FCC actions. That’s pretty cool, but I don’t get to issue news releases announcing groundbreaking discoveries from space.

So today I’m announcing I’m officially jealous of someone named J.D. Harrington, the NASA spokesperson whose name was on today’s news release.
