Meet our Alumni Dr. Kate Rubins

Dr. Kate Rubins is the third Space Camp alumna to fly in space, with a launch to the International Space Station in the summer of 2016. Kate dreamed of becoming an astronaut as a child and did chores around the house to earn her trip to Space Academy in seventh grade. She left camp knowing she needed to take as many math and science courses as she could, and that focus paved the way to her study of viral diseases and, ultimately, the NASA astronaut corps. Kate received a bachelor's degree in molecular biology and a Ph.D. in cancer biology. Selected by "Popular Science" magazine as one of its "Brilliant 10" in 2009, Kate was a Fellow and Principal Investigator at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before becoming a member of the 20th NASA astronaut class.
