Mission Updates

These past few weeks have been a whirlwind. I have been able to gain so many new experiences. One of the days I was there, I was able to shadow a company called IMSS. While I was there I was able to learn more about NASA’s Recycling and Sustainable Acquisition Program, visited toxic remediation sites, and was able go tortoise tracking along the launch pad shorelines. The shorelines at Kennedy Space Center are quickly eroding and coming closer to the launch pads. The biologist team has created sand dunes to sow down this process. The dunes are covered in native vegetation to make it more sturdy. They have been tracking how animals on the wildlife refuge are responding to it. The more animals that have inhibited it, the healthier the dunes are.

I have also been working on a few of my main projects. One of them is coming up with ideas for the Nature and Technology Exhibit, this exhibit is currently underutilized. I have a few ideas that I think might enhance the experience while still connecting people to the environment. I have also been working on a project with some astronauts, which I am going to keep secret for now:)
