CereProds satisfied a rocket ship full of ambition when they hosted Earths foremost explorers into the reaches of the stars.
It was a week of special events as NASA toured Puerto Rico with Joe Acaba, resident of the International Space Station in near-earth orbit for 5 months. Visits to centers of education, robotics manufacturers and conferences gave industrial leaders and young students the chance to hear stories and lessons from the spaceman as well as ask their own questions. CereProds provided partial crew for the production.
Joseph Michael "Joe" Acaba is an American educator, hydrogeologist and NASA astronaut. In may 2004 he became the first person of Puerto Rican heritage to be named as a NASA astronaut candidate, when he was selected as a member of NASA Astronaut Training Group 19. He completed his training in February 2006 and was assigned to STS-119, which flew from March 15 to March 28, 2009 to deliver the final set of solar arrays to the International Space Station. Aqaba served as Flight Engineer aboard the International Space Station, having launch on May 15, 2012. He arrived at the space station on May 17 and returned to earth on September 17, 2012. Aqaba returned to the International Space Station in 2017 as a member of Expedition 53/54.
Puerto Rico, still embattled by Hurricane Maria welcomed Acaba with pride and respect from all. Ababa's family is from the small northern town of Manatí, famous for its other-worldly beaches and ecosystems.
