Ahh… IT access. Work was finally moving along. The Eta Car group had me working with a new program they were hoping to use to get a new angle on their research.

As we approach the conclusion of our work this summer, Darren and I, the two NASA interns, will be presenting our work on August 1st at the center-wide intern poster session at Goddard.

On Friday we toured NIST with Alexandra and Dr. John Suehle, her mentor. We visited so many labs that I’ve probably lost track of a few, but these are the highlights. Our first stop was in the electron microscopy suite – though the star of the show wasn’t even an SEM.

This week we held the NASA Goddard tour for the other SPS interns, and I made major progress on my project. Early in the week I decided to replace the hodgepodge of bits from the parts-without-a-home cabinet that had been simulating the central component of my model with a proper part.

My main accomplishments this week comprised one material project and one conceptual breakthrough: I built a fully analogous test rig for the Kevlar strands, and I figured out an elegant way to route them.

This week has been both productive and enjoyable – it’s my favorite week thus far, and given the prospects of my project, the trend looks like it will continue.

It's officially been over a month since I left DC. As I lose myself in another semester of school, I think back on my internship with fond memories.

The tail end of the second week caught me by surprise; I was the overconfident gazelle to it’s stealthy, hungry lion.

My new roommate Ro summed up our first day in DC with the simple and honest truth: “It doesn’t get weirder than this.” You see, we were at a restaurant at 11:30 at night thousands of miles away from our hometowns with people we had met less than six hours previous… And we were having fun.

The Kennedy Center is a delightful place to unwind from the workweek, and that’s just what we did on Friday. The National Symphony Orchestra played an enjoyable program with some rather interesting cello solos, and we took it all in from our seats in the first row.
