Monday the third of June was our first day at work for the summer, and everything looks quite exciting. As we’ll hopefully continue to do throughout the summer, all of us who are staying at GW walked to the metro station at 7:40, and we were at the American Center for Physics at 9 on the dot.
My last week at Goddard and AIP was a very good review of what I'd done all summer. I reviewed my slides and my work (also in Latex) in order to create a poster for the NASA intern poster session. My project was very well suited to my skills and the time period allotted.
My official first week on the job has been pretty exciting. I've read several papers on the CMB, the CLASS Detector, and the primary noise source in the detector. I've basically spend the whole week learning lots of new things and meeting lots of people.
Technology. I’ve known a couple of people who, upon learning of my two majors, question the wisdom in pursuing a degree in two vastly different subjects. These people wave their hands and claim that the two don’t work together, but I disagree. I see the two as entirely complimentary and after finishing my undergraduate studies, I hope to combine my love of sound and science and pursue a Ph.D. in Acoustics.
