Aerospace in the News
1. Blue Origins Info Session
Monday, Oct. 27th, 4:30-5:30pm
Internship and Job Opportunities in the Commercial Human Spaceflight Industry
Blue Origin, LLCRob Meyerson, President will be holding an Information Session on Monday, October 27, 4;30-5:30 in Phillips 219
PIZZA will be available. Sponsored by ASME
Internship, co-op, and full time opportunities are available for both undergraduate and graduate students, primarily in Mechanical and Aerospace, Computer Science, and Electrical & Computer Engineering. Our interns participate in real engineering design projects related to the development and construction of human space flight systems. Interns work directly with our engineers to contribute to project goals in the fields of mechanical design, fluids, aerodynamics, rocket propulsion, flight controls, electronics, avionics, enterprise software, flight software, composites, chemistry, human safety, and systems engineering. Working directly with our team, students gain real-life experience that allows them to apply classroom learning to real aerospace challenges.
Current students in engineering, science, and technology are invited to apply for this 10-week program. Internships are typically conducted in the summer, but they are also available during the spring and fall academic calendar. Most Blue Origin internships are available at our facility in Kent, Washington, but we also have some opportunities at our facility in West Texas. Our interns receive housing and a competitive compensation package.
3. Todd Barber Lecture
Come and see Todd Barber, a JPL Propulsion Enginner, present on Curiosity's mission to Mars!
Abstract: “Red Rover, Red Rover: Send Curiosity Right Over”
Curiosity's mission to the red planet will be covered in detail. Topics to be discussed include a bit on the history of Mars rovers at JPL, the scientific motivation for Curiosity, and the preparations for launch two days after Thanksgiving in 2011. The science suite on board this one-ton mega rover will be presented, as well as the engineering challenges involved in getting Curiosity to the launch pad, traveling 352 million miles to Mars over 8.5 months, and 'sticking the landing' following the so-called 'seven minutes of terror' on August 5th, 2012. Early mission science results will be presented as well, followed by pop-culture reaction to the rover landing.
4. Summer Experience Panel
Wednesday, Nov. 19th, 5-6pm
