Chelsea Cook is a sophomore physics major from Newport News, Va. She’s taking a full load of courses such as physics and multivariable calculus, maintains a 3.3 grade-point average, and is active in the Society of Physics Students and the Ladies of Robeson, a women’s physics group. She likes to write science fiction and listen to astrophysics lectures on her iPod.
And one more thing. Cook is blind.
Her goal is to be an astronaut.
