NASA astronaut takes Twitter to space en Espanol

NASA has tweeted in space, but now one of its astronauts is breaking a new space Twitter barrier. He will tweet from space in Spanish and English.

Astronaut Jose Hernandez grew up in a migrant farming family and did not learn English until he was 12. He is scheduled to fly aboard the space shuttle Discovery in August and tweet bilingually from orbit. It will be his first flight.

His twitter account is astro_jose. He has already started tweeting in both languages while training on the ground.

NASA says this is the agency's first Twitter account in Spanish.
