Spacecraft Thermal Verification and Analysis

Johnson Space Center (JSC) - Internship
Intern will perform analysis and planning for spacecraft thermal systems. This may be building/writing/creating simulation models representing temperature response of spacecraft. This may also involve analysis and planning of testing to research thermal behavior or to verify thermal characteristics of a spacecraft design. In this description, the term, spacecraft, should be interpreted broadly in that this opportunity may be for entire spacecraft (crewed of robotic) or for systems or for individual components.

Expected outcome: Intern will have acquired an understanding of all means of heat transfer and how this is applied to real world applications. Intern will have communicated technically on a day to day basis with peer engineers. Intern will have presented to project/program management and thus acquired skills required to communicate technical issues and subjects. Intern will formally summarize tasks and conclusions of those tasks with either reports and/or presentations.
Student's special skills: Student shall be capable of working on a workstation with a Windows operating system. He or she shall have basic coding skills for writing algorithms. That is that he or she can write in Fortran or is capable of acquiring that skill during the working tour. The acquisition of writing in Fortran has typically been easy for those who are familiar with writing algorithms in computer languages of programs.
