Life as a NASA Intern

Jamie O’Brien ‘21



During the summer of 2019, I interned at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA, working on a project to support In-Space Assembly. This project was a proof-of-concept demonstration of inertial transfer, or rather the transfer of an object between two robotic agents using the object’s inertia instead of propulsion or a tether.


And now this semester, Spring 2020, I am working at a different NASA location – the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD - working on a miniaturized sensor platform.


Here are a few videos that give a bit more info about me and the work I did last summer Langley:
