Benjamin Breer is a second-year student doing a double major in physics and aerospace engineering. Last summer, while still a first-year student, he submitted his first first-author paper – “Energetic Ion Dynamics in the Perturbed Electromagnetic Fields near Europa” – to the Journal of Geophysical Research: Space Physics, which published the work on Sept. 6. The findings have significance for missions to search for life on Europa, a moon of Jupiter that is high on NASA’s list of places outside Earth to explore for life. The paper is likely to be the first of many scientific reports from Breer, who says, “I always feel like there is something else to be discovered.”
