My research was winding down a lot this week as I had to summarize everything and draft my poster for the NASA poster fair next Thursday.

Last week was full of huge strides in my project, and a lot more information on the James Webb Space Telescope than I ever expected to get.

This week at NASA was another busy week. I can’t believe the poster session is already less than two weeks away. This week I worked with my mentor to continue to analyze the solar wind and analyze the interaction of solar wind and mercury.

This week at work was all about optimization and organization. I spent a good portion of my work week writing up programs to improve my work efficiency. Some of my programs used to take upwards of 3 hours to run just due to the amount of data that was needed for each process.

This past week has been a continued grind towards the end goal of my project: to make and test a sample of our infrared absorbing material.

This past week has brought a lot of realizations and progress in my work, as well as more opportunities to learn about NASA and meet other people in STEM.

This week was a short but jam packed week. I have made some progress in my research, but I have also spent the last few weeks barking up the wrong tree. After a week of long work days and toiling over my code, I believe I have a clearer idea about what my reasearch is producing.

Week four is over, and it’s been just as amazing as every other week so far. Most importantly, my project at NASA is finally starting to gain momentum.

This week I continued working on analyzing and understanding periodic density structures in the solar wind, now more specifically in pseudo-streamers. A pseudo-streamer is a stream of solar wind that does not have an electric current.

This week at NASA I was able to do some real science!  I began working with a computer program to analyze data of solar wind. In particular, we are looking for density structures in the wind that are periodic.
