Now I’ve always been a space geek, just look at the path my LEGO building takes, but recently I had the amazing opportunity that turned me back in to a 12 year old boy again. I was invited to attend a NASA Tweetup for the Gravity Recovery And Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission which included tour of Kennedy Space Center and viewing of the launch form the NASA causeway. How could I say no?
A tweetup is when people who follow a twitter account, like NASA, meet up in real life. With a NASA Tweetup, the space agency invites a certain number of it’s followers for a behind-the-scenes look at for a high profile event which includes special guests and amazing access to facilities.
