NASA Answers Questions via TwitterBy: Chris Gabbard - March 20, 2012
NASA will take questions from Twitter during news briefings about upcoming International Space Station missions today, at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. After reporters at the event ask questions, NASA will take questions submitted on Twitter using the hashtag #askStation. Questions will be selected in advance and during the briefings. NASA Television and the agency’s website will broadcast the events live.
The briefings will preview the upcoming Expedition 32 and 33 space station missions.
At 11 a.m. CDT, (I guess that makes it noon for us East Coasters, though initial coverage has just begun) the space station program and science overview briefing will cover mission priorities and objectives. These include hundreds of research experiments, a Russian spacewalk, international and commercial cargo deliveries to the station and a commercial cargo demonstration flight.
