At the NASA Press Site at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Twitter followers participate in a unique event, a Tweetup, held to share the excitement of a space shuttle launch with a new audience.
The two-day event will provide NASA Twitter followers the opportunity to take a tour of Kennedy, view a shuttle launch and speak with shuttle technicians, engineers, astronauts and managers, as well as the staff behind the tweets on @NASA. Launch of shuttle Atlantis on the STS-129 mission to the International Space Station is scheduled for 2:28 p.m. EST on Nov. 16.
