Christopher Sembroski is an American data engineer, Air Force veteran, and space tourist, currently living in Everett, Washington, USA. He is a Lockheed Martin employee and private astronaut for the planned Inspiration 4 mission[1]. The position was given to Sembroski after a friend from Embry–Riddle Aeronautical University had declined the prize, transferring it to Sembroski. Sembroski has long had an interest in space, being an amateur astronomer and rocketeer.[2][3][4] He is now preparing, with the three other crew members, to fly on the Inspiration 4 mission to space.[5]

Career[edit]

Sembroski grew up in Kannapolis, North Carolina[1]. During college, Sembroski volunteered for ProSpace, a nonprofit organization advocating for private spaceflight.[3] Sembroski also was a counselor at Space Camp, a government-funded educational camp in Huntsville, Alabama which promotes science, technology, engineering, and math to children and teenagers.[2][3] After college, Sembroski joined the United States Air Force as a missileman, a position he served up until recently.[6] Sembroski now serves as a data engineer for Lockheed-Martin.[4]
