Want to Tweetup with a NASA astronaut? Now's your chance

Soon space travel enthusiasts will be able to engage in a tweet session with one of NASA's astronauts. NASA has invited its Twitter followers to participate in a Tweetup, an informal meeting for Twitter users, with astronaut T.J. Creamer--who sent the first live tweet from the International Space Station a few months ago--on Thursday, July 29.

During the event, 100 lucky participants who will be randomly picked by NASA tomorrow will be able to talk to Creamer, the creators of NASA's Twitter account, and other space enthusiasts. Other applicants will be put on a waiting list to participate in the discussion.

Creamer spent 161 days living aboard the space station beginning in December 2009 as part of the Expedition 22 and 23 crews and returned to Earth on June 2. Interested participants can contact Creamer via his Twitter account: http://www.twitter.com/Astro_TJ.
