I’m going to Vandenberg!!

A couple weeks ago, I saw a tweet from NASA asking for people to volunteer for a NASA social event covering the launch of the SMAP (Soil Moisture Active Passive) Satellite at Vandenberg AFB on the central coast of California. Me loving all things NASA, I went ahead and applied for the chance.

At first, I was put on the waiting list with a promise of keeping me posted if people didn’t accept the invite. I didn’t think much of it until today when I got a Twitter notification that I was added to the SMAP Social group on Twitter. Sure enough, I checked my email, and there was the invite! I was so floored that I was accepted for this opportunity and I can’t wait to get my tour of the facility and post information here for all to see.

In the meantime, I need to read the press release to get up to date on the mission specifics. Oh, and you better believe the Gorn is going to be there too.

Stay tuned on Jan 28 and 29 for coverage of the launch here at!!
