Misty Cracraft (MS: Computational Physics & Astronomy - 2004), working on the support staff at Space Telescope Science Institute, Baltimore, writes that "I'm involved in the thermal vacuum testing for the WFC3 camera right now. I've also just joined the JWST (James Webb Space Telescope) team with the Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) and will be involved in the testing of that camera this summer. It's currently at Rutherford Appleton Labs near Oxford, so that will include some travel over the summer, at least a week or two. I'm also hoping to be able to travel to Florida to see the launch of Shuttle Atlantis for the servicing mission. I've submitted my name and the names of several guests who would like to join me, so we'll see how many invitations we can get from NASA. Things are staying quite busy around here right now with work and travel opportunities.
