Well Said: Alex Longo

August 2018


Well Said is the official storytelling podcast of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with a new episode each week highlighting the faculty, staff, students, and alumni of the Carolina community.

As an incoming first-year student at Carolina, Alex Longo had a unique story. At age 13, he submitted a proposal to NASA’s call for the location of the Mars 2020 Rover landing. By the time he was accepted to the university, he was preparing for the fourth and final NASA workshop to defend that landing site.
