Wednesday, February 10, 2016

In June of last year I had the amazing opportunity to attend a NASA Social Event. According to the website NASA Social is "a program to provide opportunities for NASA's social media followers to learn and share information about NASA's missions, people, and programs... NASA Social program includes both special in-person events and social media credentials for individuals who share the news in a significant way."

Heres everything you need to know about these NASA Socials.

The second day of Space Camp was very full (prepare yourself for a mountain of pictures). It was the only entire day of the camp (Friday and Sunday were both half days). It consisted of two missions, one of which lasted two hours, rocket building, a museum tour, and IMAX movie, and riding the multi-axis trainer. Day two really was so much fun and i couldn’t possibly write down all the cool experiences I had but here is an attempt. :)
