This summer, students will be involved in activities that support missions to the Moon that utilize the Orion crew vehicle, the Deep Space Gateway, a crew lander, and robotic assets on the lunar surface. It is a unique opportunity to integrate scientific input with exploration activities in a way that mission architects and spacecraft engineers can use. Activities may involve assessments of landing sites and traverse plans for multiple destinations that are responsive to NASA objectives.

The Exploration Science Summer Intern Program is open to graduate students in geology, planetary science, planetary astronomy, and related topics. The 10-week program runs from May 26, 2020 through July 30, 2020. Selected interns will receive a $6,300 stipend to cover the costs associated with being in Houston for the duration of the program. Additionally, U.S. citizens will receive up to $1,000 in travel expense reimbursement and foreign nationals will receive up to $1,500 in travel expense reimbursement.

Applications are due January 17, 2020. For further information, visit:
