Reporting Live From NASA/JPL

NASA has invited me to spend the entire day of Monday, June 6 at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (NASA’s center for unmanned spaceflight).

All day long, I will be visiting the facilities where NASA’s unmanned spacecraft are designed, built and controlled. I will be chatting with engineers and scientists about upcoming missions and advances. Among other spacecraft, I will see the upcoming Mars Rover “Curiosity”, saying final good-byes before it is sent to Cape Canaveral for launch.

Throughout the day, I will be reporting live via Twitter (and other social media). Please follow my feed! (in English)

or (in German)

Twitter is a new medium which now has over 200 million users. Twitter messages (called “Tweets”) are brief messages of 140 characters or less. (This means they can be received on cellphones — but also on the worldwide web).

Although they are brief, “Tweets” may contain links to photographs, videos, articles, online posts or other material of interest.

You do not need a Twitter account to read the messages on your computer. But it would be helpful if you have one. (It does not cost anything). Having a Twitter account enables you to selectively and automatically follow updates from individuals, institutes and organizations, and it also allows you to “talk back”.

Hoping to see you in cyberspace!
