About

“Athena Brensberger, a student at the College of Staten Island, researched stellar proplyds in the Orion Nebula during summer 2010. She investigated the dynamics of bow shocks caused by stellar winds incident on the proplyds from hot stars in the nebula, and learned the Python programming language in order to begin rudimentary modeling of such shocks. She presented her work at the CSI Student Symposium of Research, Scholarship, and Performance in April 2011.”
