This week was quite hectic; I barely had any time in the office. Tuesday was quite an exciting day because we toured the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center… and I turned 21! We started off the tour visiting Max’s lab and meeting his mentor. Their project is really interesting. We saw the machinery they use in the detector lab and some samples of detectors they had already engineered. After that, we had another visit with Dr. John Mather who came to talk about what he has been working on lately and was exceptionally curious about what we’re all up to as well.

I took a well-needed break from DC at the start of the week to catch up with friends from high school before diving back into work for the week; I finally got to see the new Pixar movie (and as with any good Pixar movie, cried my eyes out). On Monday, all of us SPS interns got to take a tour of the American Center for Physics, where Connor, Shauna, Hannah, Patrick, Aman, and Brean have been working and they told us all about their projects.

As things quickly start picking up for us, I can feel the mid-summer lull start to lift. This past week was super busy with a lot of fun and venturing out.
