The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) is pleased to announce the names of the students selected for the 2016 LPI Summer Intern Program in Planetary Science. The LPI’s highly competitive intern program offers undergraduates the opportunity to experience cutting-edge research in lunar and planetary science, working one-on-one with scientists at the LPI and the NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) on a project of current interest in planetary science. This year’s program will run from June 6 through August 12. The students below were selected from an applicant pool of nearly 600 students, and we look forward to their arrival in June as they begin what promises to be a very rewarding summer!
