Meet Lillian – Fall 2022 Blogger

Hi! My name is Lily Tso, and I am a fourth year Mechanical Engineering undergrad at Georgia Tech. I am deeply passionate about space exploration and hope to one day aid with the colonization of Mars. I have interned at three different companies who span the entirety of the space sector: building defensive launch vehicles with Northrop Grumman, aiding Mars exploration with NASA, and launching commercial astronauts into space with Blue Origin through the Brooke Owens Fellowship.

When not looking up at the stars, I love to be down, deep underground caving with the Georgia Tech Outdoor Recreation Organization or hiking to the top of mountains— my goal is to hike to the highpoint of every state! Additionally, I love sewing and woodworking at the Invention Studio: the largest student run makerspace in the nation.
