NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) needs a data scientist for which NASA has given an advertisement.

Although nothing has been said about why the experience of cryptocurrency and blockchain is required to work in JPL, but speculations have come from people everywhere. “Is NASA finding a way to do business with aliens or is it going to launch ICO to fund moon base or something else?
Cryptocurrency and blockchain experience is not the only qualification for NASA’s data scientist job. Even though NASA are looking for people with that expertise, a Bachelor degree in Engineering, Science, Computer Science, Information Systems or related discipline with 1 year experience or a master’s degree in similar discipline is needed. Your overall GPA should be 3.0 in a scale of 4.0.
