Costa Rica: Costa Rican-born Astronaut Inducted into NASA Hall of Fame

first_img Franklin R. Chang Díaz, one of only two NASA astronauts to fly on seven space shuttle missions, was inducted into the U.S. space agency’s Hall of Fame in May 2012. The Costa Rican-born Chang Díaz also is the first Hispanic member of the hall. “I’m a product of two cultures and this honor here has a special meaning to me because it’s given by those who have always been my heroes,” Chang Díaz said. Chang Díaz served in the astronaut program, logging more than 1,600 hours in space, including 19 hours and 31 minutes during three spacewalks. He helped deploy the SATCOM KU satellite, the European Retrievable Carrier satellite, the Tethered Satellite System, the Space Habitation Module-2 and the Galileo spacecraft on its journey to Jupiter. On his final mission, STS-111 in 2002, Chang Díaz installed the mobile base system on the International Space Station and replaced the failed wrist joint on Canadarm 2, a robotic arm used to move supplies.
