Scarlin Hernandez is a Spacecraft Engineer for the James Webb Space Telescope at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD. She tests and verifies the ground systems that will be used to command and control the telescope once it’s in space. The telescope will be used to discover new planets and the first stars after the dark ages. The National Science Foundation awarded her a full college scholarship to the Capitol Technology University (CTU) in Laurel, MD. Scarlin completed a internship at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, and by the age of 20, she was part of the ground control system team for the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite. In 2013, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering, but she found her real niche in Astronautical Engineering. After graduation, Scarlin was the mission planning lead for the TRMM mission before transferring to work on the James Webb Space Telescope mission.
