"My vision is a future for humanity where we will be able to persue activities outside of our own planet". Franklin. R. Chang-Díaz, Former NASA Astronaut.
Today is the birthday of record setting astronaut Franklin Chang-Díaz. He Went into Space 7 times on the Space Shuttle and Holds the record with Fellow astronaut Jerry Ross. His seven flights began with STS-61C, the flight before the ill- fated Challenger flight, aboard the orbiter Columbia. They concluded in 2002 with STS-111 and he retired from NASA 3 Years later. He then set up a company designed to investigate photonic propulsion methods. Godspeed Franklin Ramón Chang-Díaz! #franklinchangdiaz #recordholder #jerryross #sts61c #columbia #orbitercolumbia #sts111 #endeavour #orbiterendeavour #photonicpropulsion #astronaut #astronautbirthday #Godspeed

Who knew that this Class of 1980 astronauts candidate would be the leader of NASA?? Honorable Administrator Charles Bolden, Jr. was elected as the first African American Administrator appointed by Pres. Obama in 2009. Now on his second term, the Carson, CA local (kids were born at Long Beach memorial) has orbited lower space 4x and has logged more than 680 hours in space!!!? He is the first human to have his voice broadcast on Mars. He also once piloted the now infamous #Columbia and also my favorite shuttle the #Discovery, he also was the mission commander for space shuttle #Atlantis. In addition he launched the renowned Hubble Telescope . I've met him and he is humble, kind, and exudes intelligence. Great job Honorable Bolden!!!!! #YesNASAIsStillOperable #CharlesBolden #TheDernTruth #BlackHistoryMonth #AfroAstronony #NASA #20BlackAstronauts #SimpleComplexities #28Daysaaulyp

In honor of Black History Month, I decided to post a picture of Charles F. Bolden, Jr., while he served in NASA's Astronaut Corps from 1981 to 1994 after being selected as an astronaut by NASA in 1980 as part of the 1980 Astronaut Group. Bolden served as Pilot for shuttle missions STS-61-C and STS-31, and as Commander for shuttle missions STS-45 and STS-60. Bolden was also a 1968 graduate of the United States Naval Academy and served in the United States Marine Corps from 1968 to 2004, finally retiring in 2004 with the rank of Major General. Bolden is currently serving as the Administrator of NASA after being appointed to the position in 2009 by President Barack Obama. #blackhistorymonth #africanamerican #charlesbolden #nasa #nasahistory #unitedstatesmarinecorps #nasaadministrator #spaceshuttleprogram #1980astronautgroup #sts61C #sts31 #sts45 #sts60 #spaceprogram #astronauts #usmc
