Bonnie Rubin started working on Windows to the Universein May 1994. (Way
back in the early days!) She found out about the project while choosing
an "internship" for the Sarah Parker Scholars program. Sarah Parker
Scholars are awarded by the College of Engineering and Women In Science and
Bonnie's first responsibilities were, well to first learn HTML. After that
hurdle, her job was to collect images of anything space related from other
web sites and copyrighted literature. Then she created all of the image
archives for each of the nine planets, sun, moon, astrophysical objects and
space missions (See Cool Stuff). After her graduation, she spent her
work-free second semester senior year working for Windows to the Universe.
Her main job was to write and develop the earth chapter and to obtain
copyright clearance for many of the images she collected previously.
Bonnie graduated from the University of Michigan in December 1995,
receiving a B.S. in Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences (AOSS) from the
College of Engineering. She worked on the project until May 1996 when she
left Ann Arbor to backpack through the Western United States. After a
summer of hiking and camping, she had a brief rendevous with graduate
school at UCLA in Atmospheric Sciences. Currently, Bonnie is working at
the Discovery Channel in Bethesda, MD. She can be reached at
