NASA scientists will get a deeper look at Pluto thanks to a new round of observations being led by a UT postdoctoral student.
Two UT researchers, one an undergraduate and the other a post-doc research associate, have a hand in this week’s historic Pluto flyby.
The International Business Times featured Noemi Pinilla-Alonso, a UT postdoctoral student, in this story about NASA’s flyby of Pluto on July 14. NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft will gather data to help scientists better understand the dwarf planet. Pinilla-Alonso will be the lead investigator of a new seven-day series of observations beginning July 23.
Noemi Pinilla-Alonso was interviewed by the New York Times and Scientific American about her research of the dwarf planet in our solar system known as Makemake.
