Penn State diploma first; Mars second | Penn State University
Penn State students Rachel Kronyak and John Fegyveresi have never met, but when they do, it could be on a Martian mission in the Canadian Arctic. Kronyak, a senior in geosciences, and Fegyveresi, who is earning a doctorate in geosciences, are among the 62 semi-finalists competing for a chance to spend a year at a field station in the Artic where they’ll be simulating exploration of Mars.
