Jacquelyn Linevsky is an astrophysics major at the University of Florida. She discovered her love of space when she was 4 years old and, while talking to her father, realized that the Moon is in fact not a sticker, but an entirely different planetary body.
As a student, Jacquelyn was the founder and president of the University of Florida chapter of the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS), as well as a participant in the American Astronomical Society. Jackie has worked as an intern at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the propulsion division on the Mars 2020 rover, Europa lander, and the Starshade missions. She has also volunteered at her local observatory for several years.
Jackie’s favorite pastimes include cooking, painting, hiking, camping, and traveling.
As a Brooke Owens Fellow, Jackie will work at Orbital ATK.
