I got the externship! That is, my school'll pay me to work with my astronomer friend to make an educational and outreach webpage. In return I have to write them a paper due August 12 that'll explain how it helps my students. Most likely my friend and I won't have a finished webpage by the end, but an outline of what we want in one, and a proposal for either NASA or the NSF to fund us further. I worry that if we don't have some finished product that my school won't want to pay me, but it's something I'd work on even if they didn't want to fund me, so it's no biggie. The extra money would be nice though.
