An astronaut during a spacewalk. For the first time, NASA astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson has sent a message in American Sign Language (ASL) from the International Space Station to the deaf community.


 For the first time, NASA astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson has sent a message in American Sign Language (ASL) from the International Space Station to the deaf community.
In the video, Caldwell Dyson answered several questions about living and working aboard the station and how she became interested in sign language.
“I am truly grateful for this opportunity on behalf of the deaf community and the multitudes of students who will benefit from seeing their language spoken in space. It is my hope that this video will help inspire our next generation of scientists and explorers,” said Caldwell Dyson. As NASA’s missions advance beyond Earth’s orbit, the agency will continue its efforts to highlight its diverse workforce. NASA strives to assist the next generation of researchers to gain access to science-related fields.
Caldwell Dyson will work on several other videos targeted to users of ASL. When the videos are completed, they will be posted on the NASA’s website.
