Astronaut Snaps Photo Tribute to Doctors and Nurses from Space

NASA astronaut Andrew Morgan just shared a photo and message from space to show his appreciation for the brave medical workers who are risking their health to save lives during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Morgan is himself a physician, and his Tweet was posted on National Doctors’ Day yesterday.

“As a medical doctor looking back on our planet on #NationalDoctorsDay, I think of the healthcare professionals & volunteers that are risking their lives in this crisis,” Morgan writes from aboard the International Space Station. “We’re at our best when we help each other. I’m in awe of your selfless service. Thank you from @Space_Station.”

Morgan is also leading by example with perhaps the most extreme form of social distancing, something we should all be practicing to help flatten the curve.
