Jonathan Hale is one of 25 students in the new Student Airborne Science Activation (SaSa) program at the NASA Ames Research Center. Students at SaSa are undergraduates from minority-serving institutions, competitively selected across the United States. Over the course of 8-weeks, the students will gain a hands-on research experience in all components of a scientific research campaign, including flying onboard the NASA P-3 research aircraft to collect land, ocean, and atmospheric measurements. In this conversation, Jonathan discusses his double major (!) engineering journey and what he most looks forward to in the program and in his future career in aerospace engineering.
