Twitter Takes Off

leave a comment »

So, we haven’t sent average joe’s into space just yet, but we have given them the opportunity to get closer to the action via Twitter. The hype has come about thank to Mike Massimino, who is part of the STS-125 space mission. This is his (Massimino’s) second space flight, and thought it was time to bring Twitter along. There are currently 227,949 users following him on his space mission.

Another astronaut, Mark Polansky is currently giving updates on Twitter about his training for the scheduled June launch, and has said to his over 6000 Twitter followers that they can post questions via YouTube and he will respond to them from Orbit. Polansky’s Twitter account is Astro_127.

What an amazing world we live in.
