"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."

Hi! I'm Sam

I am currently in my second year at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and am double majoring in Aerospace Engineering and English Literature. I am a first-generation, returning adult student, and never in my wildest dreams did I think I would someday become an engineer. Originally solely an English Major, I switched to Aerospace on a whim after watching a documentary about the Voyager Missions, and how the perfect alignment of the planets allowed for hyperbolic trajectories which sling-shot the spacecraft through the Solar System. I was completely enthralled and knew I needed to find a way to become involved with future deep-space exploration missions. Since then, I have discovered a passion for celestial mechanics, astrodynamics, and trajectory engineering.
