NASA hosts social media event to welcome Endeavour to California

To welcome space shuttle Endeavour to Southern California, NASA is inviting 40 of its social media followers to a “NASA Social” Sept. 19 – 20 at the agency’s Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.

Portions of the social will be carried live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

Endeavour is expected to arrive at Dryden Sept. 19 and depart Sept. 20 for Los Angeles International Airport, where it will remain in a hangar until its transfer in October to a permanent home at the California Science Center.

During the two-day event, people who engage with NASA through Twitter, Facebook and Google+ will have a rare opportunity to see the landing and departure of Endeavour as it rides piggyback on NASA’s 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. Participants also will speak with experts, tour shuttle support vehicles and other NASA aircraft, and interact with fellow NASA social media followers, space enthusiasts and members of NASA’s social media team.

The NASA Social registration opens at 9 a.m., PDT, Aug. 28, and closes at 9 a.m., PDT, Aug. 30. Forty participants will be selected randomly from online registrations. Because of space limitations, those selected to attend may not bring a guest. Each participant must be a U.S. citizen age 18 or older.

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

To join and track the conversation online during NASA Socials, follow the hashtag #NASASocial. Use the #OV105 hashtag to follow Endeavour’s cross-country journey.
