SCHOLAR SPOTLIGHT: CHRISTINA HAMMOCK


Christina Hammock, 2000–2002 Astronaut Scholar from North Carolina State University, is currently a Research Associate and Cryogenics Technician for Raytheon Polar Services Company, living and working at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in Antarctica. Her position there will last one year, encompassing a busy summer season of preparation, and a longer isolated winter of supporting science experiments. Unique aspects of living in the South Pole include the endless showering of auroras, a single sunrise and sunset to mark the year’s passage and a sky of abundant with stars. Christina reflects that perhaps the same kinds of celestial marvels also inspired the exceptional group of people that, in part, made her journey to the South Pole possible through their dedication to promoting the dreams of wonderers and explorers like her.
