WASHINGTON -- 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 fourth shuttle launch Tweetup, scheduled April 18-19, 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 the participants from online registrations. Shuttle Endeavour is targeted to lift off from Kennedy on its mission to the International Space Station at 7:48 p.m. EDT on April 19. It will be Endeavour's final mission and the penultimate mission before the shuttles are retired.
