Jason Burns a brother of SigEp Oregon Alpha recently left Corvallis for the term to fulfill an internship with The National Aeronautics and Space Administration or more commonly referred to as NASA. Jason was a standout basketball player at La Salle Catholic College Preparatory. He was even able to capitalize on his basketball skills by earning a spot on the Oregon State practice squad. Jason is overall an extremely impressive young man.
Jason was able to specify the details of his internship: “My main project is working on the life support filtration systems for future manned missions. This will include the Artemis program which departs in 2024 to the moon and also will probably be incorporated into future missions to Mars. So basically I’m focused on finding better ways to get lunar dust out of the air streams that the people onboard breathe.” He also mentioned a side project that he has been working on simultaneously, “I’m also doing a side project that’s looking at airborne particulate matter on the ISS and trying to determine where it came from and how to mitigate it.”
Very big things being done by one of our best members at Oregon Alpha.
