I’ve been procrastinating writing this blog post for a long time…I didn’t want to say goodbye!

This week, I redesigned the star camera mount again! I updated the dummy camera model in Solidworks to reflect the actual size of the camera, and added a part to represent the lens holder.

This week, I designed a new camera mount and presented it to the group. It should be more stable than the one from Week 7. I also took a picture of the back of the lab with the star camera!

Eric was out of the office this week, so Maryam (my office mate) stood in as my mentor this week! For work, I focused on the mechanical side of things with Tatsat.

I made a lot of progress at work this week. I managed to install software for the star camera and its controlling interface onto the flight computer with the EXCLAIM flight computer lead, Jim.

I’m authorized to work at NASA for the rest of the summer! On Monday, I got a call from NASA internship coordinator, Sarah Alspaw, who asked me to confirm some things before I could go in. The next day, I met Eric at NASA for a more in-depth tour of the buildings that I’d be working in.

This week, I finally got to see the Goddard Space Flight Center campus! There was an intern picnic event on Wednesday, and I got one day visitor access to participate. In theory, Goddard is 30 minutes away from ACP.

Once again, I made food for the week on Sunday. I used my leftover ingredients from last week to make pasta, as well as a stir fry with meat, tofu, and mixed vegetables to go over rice. I also got a pesto sauce and an eggplant-garlic-red pepper sauce to add to my sandwiches at work.

It’s week 1! Every day has something new to offer. On Monday, I learned that the White House is next to a whole assortment of monuments and museums, which are all within walking distance of the dorms.
