National Hispanic Heritage Month: Celebrating Mario J. Molina #HispanicHeritageMonth

Adafruit NationalHispanic Heritage Month blog

As part of our ongoing coverage of National Hispanic Heritage Month, today we are celebrating Mario J. Molina, Mexican chemist and first Mexican-born citizen to receive a Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

Mario José Molina-Pasquel Henríquez is a Mexican chemist and one of the most prominent precursors to the discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole. In 2004 he became professor at the University of California, San Diego and the Center for Atmospheric Sciences at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He was a co-recipient of the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his role in elucidating the threat to the Earth’s ozone layer of chlorofluorocarbon gases (or CFCs), becoming the first Mexican-born citizen to ever receive a Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Molina is a climate policy adviser to President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto.
