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.

Meeting the astronauts and more!

German Aerospace Day does not cease to surprise me! We’ve had the chance to hear from astronauts Paolo Nespoli, Cady Coleman and STS-134 crew including Greg H. Johnson. To prove it, check out the picture of all our Spacetweeps with them!

SOFIA – up close and spectacular!

18. September 2011, 12.19
In spite of the weather, a permanent grey cloud hovering over our heads, German Aerospace Day is off to a very promising start. At the Spacetweetup tent we were welcomed by Marco Trovatello (DLR) and Fulvio Drigani (ESA). The first European Space Tweetup had officially begun and we were told to be shareful!
