Space, and you can blog about it

I never got to fulfil my dream of being an Irish Astronaut, it would have helped if Ireland had even a glimmer of an Irish Space Program but what I have done is spread by love of space and technology by attending a NASA Social and spreading the word of what NASA and organizations do not only in space but for all humans here on earth. I encourage everyone to try and apply, it's an amazing opportunity to be behind the scenes.  https://www.nasa.gov/connect/social/index.html

Witness Cassini’s Finale at Saturn Live from JPL

Social media users are invited to apply for access to a two-day event culminating in the triumphant end of NASA’s Cassini mission to Saturn after nearly 20 years in space. Up to 25 selected participants for the September 14-15 event will tour, explore and share their experiences from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
Writers, vloggers, photographers, educators, students, artists and other curious minds who use social media to engage specific audiences are encouraged to apply.
NASA Social participants will have the opportunity to:
  • tour JPL, including a visit to mission control and the Spacecraft Assembly Facility
  • meet Cassini mission scientists and engineers
  • share in the final moments of the Cassini spacecraft in orbit around Saturn, live from the JPL media site
  • meet fellow space enthusiasts who are active on social media
  • meet members of NASA’s social media team
NASA Social registration for this event opens on this page on Thursday, June 22, and the deadline to apply is Thursday, June 29 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. All social applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
