Hello Tehran, Nazanin Moghbeli’s Instagram Post With Photos From Tehran In Space

  On March 20, Lt. Col. Jasmin Moghbeli, an Iranian-American astronaut leading NASA's summer 2023 mission to the International Space Station, was a featured speaker with President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden at the first annual White House Nowruz reception. In her remarks, Moghbeli expressed pride in her Persian heritage. “Isn’t it amazing that I could say with complete honesty, as an Iranian-American woman who wasn’t even born here, that I have just as much chance as anyone else of being on the Artemis 3 mission [to the moon]?”
