Event Will Give Twitterverse An Insiders View Of The Shuttle
For the first time, NASA Twitter followers can personally go
inside the heart of a space shuttle mission at the agency's Johnson
Space Center in Houston. NASA is hosting a unique Tweetup on
Wednesday, February 17 during Endeavour's STS-130 mission to the
International Space Station. Endeavour is targeted to launch on
Sunday, February 7.
"We're excited to be hosting NASA's sixth Tweetup," said NASA
astronaut Mike Massimino, who also is known as @astro_Mike. "This
is the home of all of the astronauts and the historic Mission
Control Center. It's an outstanding location to provide our Twitter
community with an insider's view of human spaceflight. I'll be on
one of the two mission control teams working at that time to keep
Endeavour and space station operating safely. Hopefully a few of my
Twitter followers can participate in this exciting event."
NASA will randomly select 100 individuals on Twitter from a pool
of registrants who sign up on the Web. An additional 50 registrants
will be added to a wait list.
