Undergraduate Research at Carnegie-Mellon University

Corrine Vassallo, a Physics and Music Performance major, talks about her contributions to Carnegie Mellon University entry for the Google Lunar X Prize, an optical orbit determination system that will guide the lander to the surface of the moon. Professor Red Whitaker, her faculty research mentor and CEO of CMU spin-off Astrobotics, discusses how it is important for students like Corrine to have concentrated research time in the summer to grow as practitioners in their discipline.
