Astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dawson Signs from Space

Astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dawson says, "One thing I have learned is that deaf people can do anything. The only thing they can't do is hear. Maybe one day you can fly into space and live on the ISS."

What's the ISS? And why is Tracy Caldwell Dawson talking about flying into space?

The ISS is the International Space Station, where Dawson has been since April 4 of this year. She's talking about flying into space because it's true - maybe you could, one day, no matter if you are deaf. And she said it in American Sign Language, from the Space Station. You can watch the video here.

According to the above-linked article, in 1992 Bill Readdy also signed a message from STS-42, a Space Shuttle Discovery mission. That video is at the link and you can watch it here:
