NASA invites social media followers to Kennedy Space Center

NASA invites its social media followers to a two-day NASA Social Aug. 2-3 to celebrate Kennedy Space Center’s 50 years of human spaceflight.

NASA Socials are in-person meetings with people who engage with the agency through Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other social networks.

Participants will receive a unique perspective into Kennedy’s 50 years of launching humans and machines into low Earth orbit and to other planets. They will be treated to speakers from Kennedy’s past, present and future, and tour the historical launch pads of NASA’s early days through the present-day facilities that supported the Space Shuttle Program and Kennedy’s transition to the future.

The event will culminate with Kennedy’s participation in NASA’s first-ever multi-center simulcast to preview the landing of the Mars Science Laboratory’s Curiosity rover. The simulcast will be held at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

Registration for the NASA Social opens at 2 p.m., EDT, July 12, and closes at 2 p.m. July 16. Fifty participants will be selected from online registrations. Because portions of this event may take place in restricted areas, registration is limited to U.S. citizens.
