LPI Summer Intern Alumni

Since 1977, groups of undergraduate student interns have spent part of their summer performing research at the LPI or with the JSC Astromaterials group. For many interns, this was a defining moment in their careers, when they decided whether or not to follow an academic path. While past interns can be found all over the world and in a wide variety of occupations, all share the common bond of that summer in Houston.
