Last month, I submitted my name for one of NASA’s #JourneyToMars promotions—specifically, the Orion Test Flight “Boarding Pass” shown above, where they’ll etch your name into a computer chip that flies aboard the spacecraft.
While I was poking around the web site, I also registered for the associated NASA Social event, because why not?
And I got in.
So I’ll be at Kennedy Space Center the week after Thanksgiving with a bunch of other folks from the Internet to watch the Orion launch and tour some NASA facilities and meet people working on the project and I don’t know what else.
Even better, I’ll be rooming and carpooling with my fabulous Clarion West classmate (and NASA Social veteran) Alison Wilgus! Follow us on Twitter if you dare. 🙂
