In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, NASA is releasing four Spanish-language episodes of its weekly web series “Space to Ground.”
Titled “Espacio a Tierra,” the Spanish-language videos will provide a weekly look at the events taking place aboard the International Space Station. Each will be available in high definition on Mondays beginning today and ending Oct. 12.
These efforts are part of NASA’s Commitment to Action for the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary.
“Space to Ground” is a short wrap-up of the week’s activities aboard the space station that showcases the diversity of activities taking place aboard the world’s only orbiting laboratory. The videos are posted to the agency’s social media accounts and encourage the public to follow along and engage with NASA’s work off the Earth that benefits those of us living on the Earth.
The International Space Station is a convergence of science, technology and human innovation that enables us to demonstrate new technologies and make research breakthroughs not possible on Earth. It has been continuously occupied since November 2000 and, since then, has been visited by more than 200 people and a variety of international and commercial spacecraft. The space station remains the springboard to NASA’s next giant leap in exploration, including future missions to an asteroid and Mars.
