WASHINGTON -- NASA will give 150 of its Twitter followers an insider's 
look at the nation's space program and the opportunity to view a 
space shuttle launch in person. The fourth shuttle launch Tweetup, 
scheduled April 18-19, will be held at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in 

Attendees will tour the center, view the shuttle launch and speak with 
NASA managers, astronauts, shuttle technicians and engineers. NASA 
randomly will select the participants from online registrations. 
Shuttle Endeavour is targeted to lift off from Kennedy on its mission 
to the International Space Station at 7:48 p.m. EDT on April 19. It 
will be Endeavour's final mission and the penultimate mission before 
the shuttles are retired.

"As the Space Shuttle Program draws to a close, it is important to 
NASA that people have the opportunity to experience a launch and 
share it with their friends, family and followers," said Stephanie 
Schierholz, social media manager at NASA Headquarters in Washington. 
"This is our fourth and very well could be our final shuttle launch 
Tweetup, so we're excited about making it a special experience."
