Rachel grew up in our church. Her Mom and Dad are best friends. She’s been to one of our Hopewell Observatory open houses and we’re partially responsible for her focus on the sky!
After graduating from MIT she’s going to work at JPL!!!
Any help would be so appreciated!

Hi Beth and Bruce,
It's been a while, but I grew up at BRUU and my parents are Ross and Karen. I'm reaching out to say hi and try to peak your curiosity a bit. I'm now in my final semester at MIT and I'm working on a satellite.
I have been involved in the design of this small satellite for the past year. As part of a team of MIT students, I have created this design as part of a NASA competition. We are competing for a spot on their rocket so that we can send our satellite around the Moon!
We set up a crowdfunding website at https://crowdfund.mit.edu/project/1501which has a video with a cameo of me in it. This funding site ends on Thursday. I would greatly appreciate any form of support, advice, or exposure you may be able to provide. Even a small amount can make a difference if you would like to donate or even just show it to friends.
We were also recently featured in a MIT news article, which you can access at http://news.mit.edu/...o-the-moon-0205.
It's been a blast so far. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
