Hannah Perrine Mode was the JIRP 2017 Artist in Residence and has put together this fantastic site that chronicles her work this summer, both what she produced individually and what the team accomplished with her leadership. Thank you, Hannah!


The JIRP Blog

My JIRP experience strengthened in me a love of exploration that ultimately led to my participation in the space program, including the Mars Exploration Rovers Spirit and Opportunity. JIRP was fundamental to my growth as a scientist and as a person.
