LPI Lunar Exploration Intern Program - MyMoon

NASA and MyMoon have teamed up to blog about everything lunar. Art, literature, music, movies, science, and everything in between!

All quiet on the twitter front.


The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) is hosting a special lunar exploration summer intern program to evaluate possible landing sites for robotic and human exploration missions.

The LPI invites applications from graduate students in geology, planetary science, and related programs. The Lunar Exploration Summer Intern program is also open to undergraduate students in geology, astronomy, chemistry, and physics with at least 50 semester hours of credit so that they, too, can participate in lunar exploration activities. The goal of this program is to integrate NASA's lunar science priorities with the exploration components of the Constellation program. This will be a unique team activity that should foster extensive discussions among students and senior science team members.

The 10-week program runs from May 31, 2011, through August 5, 2011. Selected interns will receive a $5000.00 stipend to cover the costs associated with being in Houston for the duration of the program. Additionally, U.S. citizens will receive up to $1000.00 in travel expense reimbursement, and foreign nationals will receive up to $1500.00 in travel expense reimbursement.

Application deadline is January 21, 2011.
