Happy end of week 5! We are somehow already halfway through the summer. Currently, I am working to narrow accomplishments so that only the most important are in the short biographies I am writing for the SOR Fellows. How do you gauge what is the most important accomplishments in somebody’s life?

Shorter blog post this time. It is hard to believe this has been my fifth week of interning at NASA! I have had a great time so far with all of my other interns, and my tests have been going well.

Wow already reflecting on week 5, time is really flying now and the summer AAPT meeting is coming up fast! The panel I’m hosting is coming along well, I reached out to one of my mentors and they connected me with 4 of their students.

This fourth of July, while traveling down the river that is my internship, I looked outside sometime around evening. The sun was setting. It was painting a rainbow of autumn colors across the sky.

Units are notoriously important in physics, and the Mars Climate Orbiter (MCO) is the quintessential example demonstrating this truth. In 1999, NASA lost contact with the MCO after it was likely destroyed in the Martian atmosphere or escaped back into heliocentric space. The issue?

I cannot believe how fast this summer is going... July 4th is already past and we are halfway through our summer internships! I'm trying hard to enjoy everything while it lasts.

This was a short but chaotic week here at APS Careers. The long and short of it is that this week can “kindly” be called, Shape Up week...The email series had a very tumultuous timeline that took up far more headspace than Midhat or I predicted.

We are about at the halfway mark of this summer internship and it is hard to fathom, it seems like we only just started.

The halfway mark brings me closer to completing my project. While we have covered a lot of ground there is still a vast set of tasks to which I look forward to completing over the coming weeks. This was the first time that I got to experience a long weekend in a work setting.

This week’s post will be a bit less focused on work, and a bit more focused on a small (relatively menial) experiment I’m running this week on human behavior, namely my own.
