Using various Twitter accounts, NASA is giving the world easy-access to their once-exclusive world, offering a look into the science, discovery and everyday life at an agency established in 1958–before most people even had color televisions. (Can you imagine?)
By following NASA and its astronauts on Twitter, you can win tickets to spaceshuttle Tweetups (there happens to be one planned for the launch this month), learn about the latest discoveries, and ask them inquisitive questions like, “why is that funny dance move called the moonwalk?”
Yeah, like that wouldn’t get annoying.
There’s even a video.
