2015-08-06: Autonomy Incubator Summer Interns Complete Their Summer Missions

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone—the Autonomy Incubator (AI) interns are done. Tomorrow brings the NASA Internships Fellowships and Scholarships (NIFS) closing ceremony and the promise of a taco bar catered by AI administrative assistant Carol Castle, and after that, they will all go trickling back into the great expanse of America, from Illinois to Pennsylvania to rural New Hampshire, separated by time and space yet connected forever by the invisible threads of collective memory.

Except for Meghan and Nick. They have a while before their ten weeks are up. They're still required to be sad, though.

As we reminisce on the events of the past two months—the things we learned and the things we flew—AI social media intern Abbey Hartley has put together a time-lapse video of the entire summer to help us remember.  She used eight GoPro cameras stationed around Building 1222 to take pictures at thirty-second intervals all day, every day, then manually sifted through over 100 gigabytes of photos to create a highlight reel of our demos and daily routines.  Enjoy it below.

What do you think? Did you see your favorite Autonomy Incubator vehicle/demo/intern in the video? Was there something else we should have included? Leave a comment for us!
