U.S. Government Finds Innovative Ways to Send Latinos Far, Far Away

acabaThe NASA is boosting marketing efforts to reach out to Hispanics, in Spanish, so that one day we, too, will be walking on the moon.

“The future astronauts and NASA scientists are among 8- and 10-year-old Hispanic kids,” Jose Granda, an Ecuadorean NASA Faculty Fellow told the Orlando Sentinel.

The excitment around Hispanic astronauts gained momentum last month when NASA sent its first Puerto Rican to space, Joseph Acaba (in the photo), who by the way is NOT related to Elvis Crespo, despite his name and his love for aerial adventures.
