NASA to host 75 social media followers at Dryden

NASA will host 75 social media followers May 4 to go behind-the-scenes and learn more about NASA aeronautics, science and other projects at the agency’s Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, Calif.

Dryden is NASA’s primary center for atmospheric flight research and operations. Its remote location in the western Mojave Desert is uniquely situated for excellent year-round weather and visibility to test innovative air vehicles.

The event begins at 7:30 a.m., PDT, and will include tours of current aircraft and presentations on cutting-edge aeronautical research and science projects. Not only will guests learn about sonic booms, they could experience one first-hand.

For more information about this NASA Social event and to register, visit http://www.nasa.gov/social.

Dryden’s NASA Social registration opens at 8 a.m., PDT, April 9, and closes at noon, April 11. NASA will randomly select 75 participants from online registrations.

A NASA Social is an event for people who use NASA’s social media accounts. For this event, fans and followers on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ are eligible to register. Each participant must be 18 or older and a U.S. citizen.
