I’d like to thank Dr. Semak for all his tremendous help on this project. He, David and, Amber were all excellent mentors. They always answered any questions I had during the research process. I would specifically like to thank David Garett and Maurice Woods for their help with everything especially in regards to editing my paper. I'd also like thank the COSGC for letting me take part in the Demo-sat Program. My best regards go out to Lori Ball and UNC, for maintaining a science program as awesome as FSI. I’d like to thank the entire staff of FSI as well, the R.A.s, the teachers, etc. Lastly, I’d like to thank my parents for sponsoring me to attend this program and Xcel Energy for sponsoring my research; it has truly been a life-changing experience.
