WASHINGTON -- NASA will give 150 of its Twitter followers a front-row 
seat at the historic final space shuttle launch. The agency's fifth 
shuttle launch Tweetup, scheduled July 7-8 at NASA's Kennedy Space

Review meeting on June 28.

view the shuttle launch and speak with NASA managers, astronauts, 
shuttle technicians and engineers from across the agency.

their friends, family and followers is one way NASA can enable more 
people to experience this historic event," said Stephanie Schierholz, 
social media manager at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "While the 
Space Shuttle Program is drawing to a close, the NASA Tweetup also 
will give our followers a broader view of the agency's diverse
