Hispanic Heritage Month Greetings from Space


In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month 2023, NASA astronaut Frank Rubio pays tribute to former NASA astronaut José Hernández and his inspirational life story with a message from aboard the International Space Station, orbiting 260 miles above Earth.

His message recognizes countless contributions made by other astronauts of Hispanic heritage like Ellen Ochoa, Franklin Chang-Diaz, and Joe Acaba. These pioneering explorers remind us that space needs to remain inclusive — a place for all to discover, explore, and inspire.
