Anthony DeStefano is used to parsing complex, highly technical information. As a Ph.D. candidate at UAH, he spends his days at the Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research (CSPAR) writing code to calculate the trajectories of heavy atoms from the interstellar medium into the heliosphere. So it took him a minute to process the simple fact that he'd been selected to receive a 2015-2016 NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship in astrophysics. "I was like, Wait a minute!" says DeStefano with a laugh. "I was in shock."
