Space Tweetup in numbers

03. April 2012, 14.59
Last week, on 28/29 March 2012, the fourth European SpaceTweetup took place in Toulouse, France. A good reason to blog about the reach and numbers of such a communication measure. Plenty has already been written about the first European Space Tweetup, organised by DLR and ESA, which took place in September 2011, so I will - with some delay - now just concentrate on the numbers here. For any readers who want to know more about the SpaceTweetup and find out what it was all about, I recommend this or that blog article.

SpaceTweetup - a new format for spaceflight communication

04. January 2012, 14.44
On 18 September 2011, German Aerospace Day, DLR and ESA staged the first European SpaceTweetup. A tweetup is an event in which users of the social media platform Twitter meet up. Together with ESA, we invited our Twitter followers to come and find out more about the European aerospace industry, meet scientists and astronauts and have a look at our research facilities and aircraft.

The first european SpaceTweetup

12. August 2011, 13.37
Today we sent off the last invitation letters for the first european SpaceTweetup, jointly organised by DLR and ESA. I cannot make clear enough how happy I am to organise and host this event together with our friends from ESA's communication department. But before I give you a little bit of background information on how the event came about, let me first answer the often heard question:

The first version of the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) iPhone App is now available via the iTunes store. This free App gives users access to a wealth of information wherever they go. The DLR App is a dynamic online news aggregator that compiles all relevant information on DLR research areas of space, aviation, energy and transport - from breaking news to videos to imagery - and delivers it to your iOS device (iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad).

DLR's presence on blogs and Twitter during the volcanic eruption in April 2010

29. November 2010, 21.46
As the Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted, in Iceland at the end of March/ early April 2010, its ash cloud created an unprecedented situation for European air travel. By mid-April, air travel over northern and central Europe was resumed. DLR was involved in investigating the ash cloud and its effects on air travel in several different ways. I'd like to use this blog entry to illustrate our experiences and learning processes in online communication over this period in mid April 2010, especially on DLR blogs and on Twitter.

A few words about social media and DLR's online communications

17. August 2010, 15.30
Ever more frequently, we in the DLR Communication Department have to answer the question how and why we use social networks and social media in our work. In this blogpost I'd like to go into our social media strategy - and to explain our approach to online communications in general.

@DLR_de: Interactions on Twitter during German Aerospace Day 2009

02. March 2010, 11.40
The DLR Web Portal is indeed the most important tool in our online communication arsenal. Nevertheless, here at DLR Communication, over the last few years we have realised that we are not able to reach all potential communication partners on this platform. Therefore, we decided to go where those people were, for example, to the social media portals. We are also fully aware of the fact that communication is not a one-way street. We want to be contactable, to open a channel for feedback and to respond to what we are told. Twitter is an ideal medium for that purpose.
