Sign in Space

A space station astronaut has given the first sign language address from space. Tracy Caldwell Dyson recorded a six-minute video for deaf children from the International Space Station. She spoke of about life as an astronaut. This is the first time ASL has been used on the space station, according to NASA. Dyson says she was on the track team with a deaf college student who taught her to sign. Watch her video from space below.
