¡Bienvenidos!/Welcome!

This site was created to focus on the 14 Hispanic men and women who have participated in the NASA Career Astronauts program and are members of the NASA astronaut corps. Their links have been compiled from NASA Johnson Space Center Astronauts web site and listed below to facilitate their quick reference.

We hope you enjoy reading their biographies and some of the included Spanish interviews.

You may also want to read the NASA Fact Sheet about Hispanic American Space Explorers (November 2003). Also don't forget to visit the interesting links listed throughout this page or learn how you can one day become an astronaut too!
