As a future explorer of the universe I am always looking for new adventures. Sometimes they adventures find me. Last Thursday I had a new experience that was truly different and an adventure as I didn’t know what to expect. I was invited to be the guest of the #SpaceChat on Twitter run by @Go2DeepSpace also known as the Coalition for Space Exploration. The Twitter description of this group gives a good understanding of what they are about “A DEEPER PURPOSE. A BOLDER MISSION. The United States is entering a new era in human spaceflight. Explore the portal to Deep Space!”
It was an honor to be a guess on the #SpaceChat which boasts guests such as Alexis Crane, former NASA Ames Astrobiolist, turned educator; Tom Martin, a Project Manager for Advanced Space at Aerojet Rocketdyne; Elizabeth Howell, a journalist who documents space, science and business ; and Astronaut Charlie Precourt, four time astronaut and ATK executive.
For me the adventure was learning quickly how to keep up with a chat. Fortunately my mom was with me and gave me a bit of guidance in the beginning. But I quickly got the hang of it and had a good time tweeting away answering questions and getting to know some new people. You can read the transcript below. And feel free to contact me if you have questions that were not answered.
