Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 45 Commander Scott Kelly of NASA paid tribute to a researcher at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama as part of ABC’s “Good Morning, America” “Above and Beyond” series. The son of a preacher, Trent Griffin and his six brothers and sisters were raised to reach for the stars and improve their community with them. Griffin did just that, eventually becoming a NASA physicist at the Marshall Flight Space Center in his hometown, working on space station life support systems and building a new glove box for conducting research in orbit. After coming across five siblings that shared a single bicycle in Huntsville, Griffin bought several used bikes, refurbished them and donated them to children in the community. For his service, Griffin was honored by Kelly and the hosts of the “Good Morning, America” program.
