Ellen ochoas father is Mexican, therefore leaving Ellen half Mexican.
No Ellen's parents did not die. Peter did.
The surprise Ellen receives during the funersl of Great-Aunt Birte is the arrival of Ellen's parents and the arrival of Peter. Ellen is rejoiced to finally see her parents again.
Ellen's very first job was her being a Bachelor of Science Physics, San Diego State University, 1980 i believe that's what it says in my book (if u think that I'm not right please rent your own book called "Ellen Ochoa Pioneering Astronaut " ( only if u don't believe me )
Allan and Ellen.
