EVONA Welcome Christina Korp as New Strategic Advisor
We’re delighted to introduce EVONA’s newest strategic advisor – Christina Korp.
Alongside the enormous growth we’ve experienced as a company, Christina’s industry experience and expertise will be instrumental in our mission to shape the space sector one inspired person at a time.
Christina has a wealth of knowledge across many corners of the space sector. She’s a space advisor, astronaut manager and the president of Purpose Entertainment. Impressively, she managed Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin and played a vital role in launching his education foundations – ShareSpace and the Aldrin Family Foundation. Christina is even known as an ‘astronaut wrangler’ because of her history of managing and working with high-profile astronauts.
Christina is the founder of SPACE for a Better World, a space education and advocacy organisation that partners with schools, universities, education foundations and space grant consortiums. They create progammes and projects that can be duplicated in any community to inspire, educate and raise awareness of the ways space can be used for good.
“I’m excited about partnering with EVONA because of our shared values and purpose,” Christina commented. “We all came to space from outside of the space ecosystem and I think we see the enormous possibilities with a fresh perspective that is really needed. I look forward to working with the crew at EVONA to inspire more people to want to work in space.“
Before entering the space sector, Christina had a fruitful music career. After being in a family band for 10 years, she moved to LA aged 22 to pursue her dreams of being a rockstar. She went on to produce records, tour the world and even sing backup for legends like Ringo Starr. She eventually took a job working as Buzz Alrdin’s manager, and so begun her incredible journey into the space industry.
“Not only is Christina’s experience incredible, but from the very first meeting it was clear that EVONA’s vision of a more inclusive space sector aligned perfectly with Christina’s. We’re thrilled to be working alongside people that genuinely want to make a difference to our sector and can’t wait to see what the future holds for this partnership,” said Jack Madley, EVONA Co-Founder.
As a lifelong lover of space who took an unconventional route into the sector, Christina provides a fresh perspective that aligns perfectly with our own. She’s a passionate advocate of inspiring people of all ages, genders and backgrounds to get involved in space and other STEM industries. Christina’s mission is to connect the space curious to the space serious, demystifying the sector and increasing awareness of the sector’s incredible work.
We’re both proud and excited to be partnered with such an inspiring member of the space sector. Our crew are very much looking forwards to working with Christina to help people to find their place in space and shape the sector for future generations.
