WASHINGTON -- For the first time, NASA's Twitter followers will have
the opportunity to directly talk live with astronauts aboard the
International Space Station. NASA is hosting this unique Tweetup for
35 people from 10 a.m. to noon EDT on Wednesday, Oct. 21, from the
James E. Webb Memorial Auditorium at NASA Headquarters, 300 E Street
SW, in Washington.

NASA Television and the agency's Web site will provide live coverage
of the Tweetup. Reporters planning to share in this unique
collaborative experience must register with NASA public affairs at
202-358-1100 by 5 p.m. on Oct. 14. Because of the event's limited
time, journalists will not be permitted to ask questions of the
astronauts on the space station.

NASA Twitter followers in attendance at the Tweetup will have the
opportunity to ask space station crew members Nicole Stott and Jeff
Williams questions about what life is like in space during a
20-minute downlink. Williams' Twitter username is @Astro_Jeff, and
Stott's is @Astro_Nicole. The event will include a "meet and greet"
session to allow participants to mingle with a former station
astronaut and the staff behind the tweets on @NASA.
