NASA: Sharing Space

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The nation's space agency has embraced the use of social media to reach out, engaging new audiences in new ways and giving people behind-the-scenes access to areas rarely seen by the public. By using tweets, blog posts and streamed video interviews with groups across the world, the astronauts living and working on orbit have a unique vantage point in which to conduct science-altering experiments, encourage the next generation to study STEM in school and to open a door that rekindles the dreamer in all of us. Hear from and ask questions to an astronaut who recently flew aboard the International Space Station and NASA's social media manager during this panel and explore all the ways that you can connect with what's going on way up there from all the way down here.
