My blog, and the accompanying social media, has brought me some incredible experiences in my life. The people I've met, the places I've visited, things I've experienced that I never even thought of doing, I have done.
Live jazz at Preservation Hall in New Orleans, a sister bonding trip to Beaches in Turks & Caicos, driving up the southern California coast to go “glamping” with friends, standing on-stage for a pop punk concert at the Vans Warped Tour. Things I never knew I'd want to do until I was presented the opportunity.
Well this afternoon, I embark on what might be the craziest of these adventures yet. I'm boarding a plane to Salt Lake City, from where I'll head to Promontory, Utah to witness this:
I have been invited to join NASA and ATK to see the test firing for the largest, most powerful booster ever built for the Space Launch System (SLS) — NASA's new heavy-lift rocket in development to enable missions farther into space than ever before.
I will have NASA Social Credentials, and will be live tweeting/Instagramming/Facebooking the whole experience. Of course, it'll all get a rundown on the blog after I get home, but be sure to follow along later this week to see stuff as it's happening!
Follow me on Twitter (@Lizz_Porter) and Instagram (@Lizz_Porter) to see everything I post, and follow the #NASASocial and #SLSFiredUp hashtags to see posts from the other 39 social media folks I'll be touring with.
I would also suggest you follow @NASASocial, @NASA_SLS, and @ATK on Twitter, NASA on Facebook, and on Google+.
EEk! How exciting Liz. Glad to know a fellow science nerd 😉 I will make sure to follow you on social media!
