Support makes internship possible at NASA Ames

Linnea Persson of the KTH School of Electrical Engineering was awarded SEK 36,600 from KTH Opportunities Fund to finance an internship at NASA Ames, NASA 1"2 Program for international students in California.

Linnea was offered a place at the research unit for aerodynamics which is home to the world’s largest wind tunnel. To a great extent the research will focus on rotor power stability and performance. This is a chance for Linnea to visit one of the most prestigious research centres in the world, as well as to meet some of the top researchers in the field. It is a great opportunity for her to learn more about her chosen field of space technology.

Linnea attended the trainee programme between January and April, 2016.

From the launch of SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that should have landed on a platform in the ocean, but missed. Due to adverse weather conditions visibility was low.
Our department attended the AHS Aeromechanics Specialist’s conference in San Francisco for three days and one of the sights we saw was the Golden Gate Bridge.
We visited a military hangar and saw the UH-60 Black Hawk.
