For more than 22 years, since before NASA's Cassini mission even launched, flight controllers have invited summer interns to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to help make the mission at Saturn happen. But with the spacecraft's journey ending in September, the current summer interns will be Cassini’s last.
Meet the students and learn what role they're playing in the nearly 13-year mission at Saturn.

The laboratory’s STEM internship and fellowship programs are managed by the JPL Education Office. Extending the NASA Office of Education’s reach, JPL Education seeks to create the next generation of scientists, engineers, technologists and space explorers by supporting educators and bringing the excitement of NASA missions and science to learners of all ages.
