VICTOR GLOVER SET TO MAKE HISTORY AS FIRST BLACK NASA ASTRONAUT TO LIVE ON INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION
This Sunday, Nov. 15, at 7:27pm EST, Victor Glover will be soaring into space, piloting The SpaceX Crew-1 mission. He is knocking out several firsts with this flight. Glover is the first Black person in space since Alvin Drew in 2007, the first Black astronaut to fly for SpaceX, and the first to move into the International Space Station for an extended stay. There have been other Black astronauts to visit the station while it was under construction, however they were members of space shuttle crews and their stays were brief. Glover told MyNews13 that he’s over the moon about the mission.
