"Because of my internship at the SAO, I was able to meet and talk to plenty of professional Astrophysicist and Astronomers. My research advisor, Dr. Rudy Montez, helped me develop the skills needed to do research at the graduate level. All of the scientists I met inspired me to apply for graduate school." - Fernando Mazzoni
