In November 2020, NASA astronaut Victor Glover launched on his first spaceflight, becoming the first Black astronaut to live on the International Space Station as part of a long-duration mission.
To celebrate Victor Glover’s historic stay on the ISS, the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum and National Museum of African American History and Culture have collaborated with Glover to help document his first trip to space through educational programming and digital content.
Students and families can explore themes of teamwork, artistic expression, and resilience through this collaboration. It will provide a look at the hard work and dedication involved with becoming an astronaut and going to space.
