Christina Reed[edit]

Christina Reed is an international freelance editor, journalist, and author of two books on Earth and marine science history during the 20th century. Her experience communicating science to the public has taken her to the Summit of Greenland[1] and to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean[2]. She has worked side-by-side with astrobiologists operating the Phoenix Mars Mission and with geobiologists investigating the extreme living conditions of ancient seafloor basalts[3]. In 2004, she participated on a submersible dive with James Cameron aboard Russia's Mir 1 submersible to a seamount called Menez Gwen in the Azores during the filming of Aliens of the Deep. She was also aboard Mir 1 during the first four-sub dive to the Lost City hydrothermal vent site, venturing more than 1,000 meters deep. During that dive, on ascent, a technical problem resulting from the loss of the sub's 16-volt battery arose requiring the pilot Anatoly Sagalevich to jetison the sub's lead weights in order to continue surfacing.[2]
