About the Tweetup!

Sun-Earth Day Tweetup

100 lucky twitter attendees have been selected to be part of the first ever Sun Earth Day - Goddard/Smithsonian joint tweetup! Participants will start their day with a trip to the Smithsonian Institution museums in Washington DC for a personalized tour focusing on the "Ancient Mysteries" Sun Earth Day theme. Then they will travel back to Goddard Space Flight Center for an afternoon VIP tour of the Integration and Test Facility and other Goddard facilities, getting a first hand view of the "New Discoveries" here at NASA. They will also be invited to the Sun-Earth Day live webcast hosted by NASA EDGE. Participants will meet NASA scientist and Twitter celebrities, as well as each other at the first Goddard-wide new media event.

This Tweetup will be the perfect opportunity to:

  • Meet NASA scientists, engineers and members of the Sun-Earth Day team.
  • Interact with twitter correspondents at Goddard Space Flight Center and independent tweetups in schools and communities across the country.
  • Take away memories and newfound connections, and maybe even some NASA swag.

This experience will be one you'll never forget.
