Big decisions in little minutes

Mars

Yesterday morning, as I was checking my email before class, an unbelievable subject line caught my eye: “USRP – Internship Offer.”

No way. It couldn’t be the same thing I applied to four months ago… could it?

But it was. So, starting in September, I’m going to be a NASA intern working on Mars data analysis at JPL. It’s going to involve “studying the composition and aqueous evolution of the martian crust” and “generating global maps of Mars, zoomable to the full dataset’s resolution to be ingested into a Google Earth type of engine.”

I’ll be withdrawing from UCLA for fall, and it means I’ll probably have to stay two extra quarters next year, but holy cow. I’m beyond excited.
