"Interning with NASA GSFC has allowed me to continue my education and to learn from some of the most incredible minds in space exploration. Working in the electromechanical branch and designing a modular rover, this experience has granted me new avenues to explore in my professional career, and I am inspired to continue my pursuit into space mission design and space systems engineering." - Michael Klooster
