Shannon Boyle and Liam Hoare, who are working with Prof. Juliane Gross on lunar and meteorite rock samples, have been selected for a highly prestigious 10-week summer intern program at the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) - NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, TX. This is a remarkable achievement for Shannon and Liam (and Rutgers as well !) as only 10 to 12 students worldwide are selected to participate in this program.
As interns, Shannon and Liam will experience cutting-edge research in the lunar and planetary sciences and work one-on-one with LPI and JSC scientists on a research project and be able to preview possible career pathways in planetary science. Shannon will work with Dr. Cyrena Goodrich on primitive achondrite breccias known as ureilites; and Liam will work with Dr. David Kring on LL chondrite impact melt breccias.
We are excited that two of our own Rutgers EPS undergraduate students get to experience such a wonderful opportunity. Well done and congratulations, Shannon and Liam!
