Don’t fret, outer-space-philes: here are 7 other astronauts you can follow on Twitter to get your galactic fix.
On January 22, 2010, NASA astronaut TJ Creamer made history.
Of the more than 500 astronauts and cosmonauts who have been into outer space, only one was the first to connect to the Internet and tweet from 250 miles above Earth. That’s TJ.
We shared with you yesterday the cool news that Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield was tweeting live form outer space last week with William Shatner, a.k.a. Captain Kirk. That technology was made possible by TJ’s groundbreaking tweet in 2010.
We had the opportunity to get some intel about the experience from the man himself.
Sure, maybe no one can hear you scream in space, but they’ll definitely listen when you start tweeting. NASA astronaut Ron Garan spent about an hour on Sunday answering people’s questions from within the International Space Station as it floated above the Earth.
