The Sun's recent activity has caught the interest of scientists and space weather forecasters worldwide, highlighting the need to keep a watchful eye on our star and its awesome power. On 6 and 10 September, our Sun produced a pair of solar flares, the strongest observed in over 10 years. They were accompanied by huge eruptions of billions of tonnes of matter into space. While many such eruptions fall back onto the hot surface, these two did not and became 'coronal mass ejections' (CMEs) -...

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. The oddball exoplanet, called WASP-12b, is one of a class of so-called "hot Jupiters," gigantic, gaseous planets that orbit very close to their host ...

    CV

                    I am interested in a full time position as an engineer at a company sponsoring the advancement in engineering. I feel that it is a great opportunity based on my interests and skills. I will receive my Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering, from The University of Texas at Austin in June 2012. My specialization is primarily in Space with an emphasis on attitude dynamics, orbital mechanics, propulsions, controls, and compressible flows. The position would also allow me to use my communication and analytical skills to be a valuable addition.

                    I have developed many skills during my undergraduate career that make me an excellent candidate for your organization. During my experience working as an undergraduate researcher at the Center for Space Research, I improved my data analysis and problem solving skills by analyzing ICEsat (satellite) data. For example, I am currently in the process of converting satellite data in FORTRAN into MATLAB. This will provide one uniform surface mask database allowing for easy geographical extraction. To accomplish this, I had to discover and learn ENVI. In addition, I have been exposed to various aspects of engineering and research allowing me to develop a better understanding of the field.

                    Also during my undergraduate career, I acquired a strong engineering background and strengthened my communication skills and ability to work as part of a team. I was able to apply my engineering knowledge into a practical context through the Wind Tunnel Development project for the Pickle Research Center, where I was a member of an eleven-person team. Through this fast-paced project, I coordinated and recorded possible designs as they were being tested in a smaller water tunnel. Working closely with my peers, we tested approximately 150 different configurations in a given time frame to produce the best flow.  I also strengthened my ability to effectively work in a team and effectively communicated my designs to the professor. One of our configurations was used for the actual design structure, and it was rewarding to be able to see something that I helped develop.

                    Additionally, I have developed leadership skills working as a propulsion specialist in our senior design project.  I was able to apply my propulsion subsystem into an overall orbiter power station around Mars to allow for the goals and objectives to be met. One of the biggest challenges I faced was maintaining interface compatibility, which required that all systems worked harmoniously. Furthermore, thruster design was needed for attitude control to accommodate large mass increase. This allowed me to personally tweak the propulsion system and scale it up to the overall design of the power station.

                    My expertise is not limited to engineering; I also minored in Business from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas through the Halliburton Business Foundation Summer Institute. I believe that engineers should be well rounded and understand the financial aspects associated with their designs to create the most efficient, cost saving, and usable products.

                     My analytical, teamwork, leadership, and communication skills have provided me with the tools necessary to perform well in the engineering field. I strongly believe that my passion and interpersonal skills will allow me to flourish. I would welcome an opportunity to meet with you. Please feel free to contact me at (832) 366-3347 or e-mail me at afsheen.vaid@gmail.com. Thank you again for your time and consideration.
