NASA rejected him 11 times before making him an astronaut/ Now his life story is

More than a decade after he became the first former migrant worker to fly in space as a NASA astronaut, Jose Hernandez reached another milestone this month.

The film about his extraordinary journey from the fields of California to the International Space Station debuted as the most popular streaming movie on Amazon Prime and has won praise from critics and audiences since its September 15 launch.

Actor Michael Peña stars as Hernández in A Million Miles Away, which tells the story of a boy who grew up picking cucumbers and cherries but kept his eyes on the stars.

For years, Hernández grew up in a family of migrant workers who followed the harvest from California and Mexico. His parents were originally from the Mexican state of Michoacán. Hernández was born in California.

"While others looked forward to summer vacation, I hated it ," Hernández told CNN in 2016.

Hernández says his dream of becoming an astronaut began after he watched the Apollo 17 moon landing in 1972.

Hernández did everything he could to continue his education. He earned bachelor's and master's degrees in engineering and went on to work for 15 years at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

Por qëllimi i tij për t'u bërë një astronaut i NASA-s mbeti i pakapshëm.

Filmi portretizon këmbënguljen e Hernández-it teksa agjencia hapësinore refuzoi aplikimet për astronautët e Hernández-it 11 herë përpara se ta zgjidhte atë për programin në 2004. Dhe tregon se çfarë roli kritik luajti familja e Hernandez duke e mbështetur atë gjatë rrugës.

Në film, aktorja Rosa Salazar portretizon gruan e Hernández, Adela, me guxim emocional si dikë që e kërkon llogari të shoqin dhe e shtyn atë të mos dorëzohet.

Në një intervistë të vitit 2016 me CNN , Hernández përshkroi se sa e rëndësishme ishte Adela në udhëtimin e tij.

“Në vitin e gjashtë që NASA më refuzoi, e thërrmova letrën e refuzimit dhe e hodha në dyshemenë e dhomës së gjumit. Unë do të hiqja dorë nga përpjekjet, por ajo më largoi, "tha Hernandez.

His wife's words: “' Let NASA be the one to disqualify you. Don't disqualify yourself.”

In an interview with Televisa after returning from space, Hernández made a comment that was controversial at the time, telling the Mexican television network that he hoped the Obama administration would pass comprehensive immigration reform. He noted that looking at the Earth from outer space, there were no boundaries.

His comments prompted NASA to take a stand. In a statement released to the media, NASA said Hernandez's opinions were his own and did not represent the space agency. The statement added that Hernandez had every right to express his personal views./ CNA
