2002 Intern Spotlight: Derek Turner


Name: Derek Turner
Home Institution: University of Colorado

“I am working under the supervision of Dr. Moltz, Director of NISNP, on compiling information on nations with space launch capabilities and treaties related to arms in space and ballistic missile defenses, as well as researching the history of the militarization of space. The internship has proved valuable in receiving direct experience in international security issues and independent research techniques. The amazing resources and knowledgeable staff of CNS, along with the informative lectures and seminars, have made this summer into a broad educational experience.”
