[b]NASA Announces Tweetup For Next Space Shuttle Launch[/b]
NASA will give 150 of its Twitter followers an insider's look at the nation's space program and the opportunity to view a space shuttle launch in person. The third shuttle launch Tweetup, scheduled Oct. 31 through Nov. 1, will be held at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Attendees will tour the center, view the shuttle launch and speak with NASA managers, astronauts, shuttle technicians and engineers. NASA randomly will select 150 participants from online registrations. Shuttle Discovery is targeted to lift off from Kennedy on its mission to the International Space Station at 4:40 p.m. EDT on Nov. 1.
"With only two scheduled shuttle flights remaining, we want new audiences to experience the excitement of a launch," said Stephanie Schierholz, social media manager at NASA Headquarters. "Our guests at the Tweetup then can share the experience with their followers around the world."
