A Last Chance to Tell the NRC *YOUR* Ideas for Human Spaceflight -- Via Twitter
The National Research Council's (NRC's) Committee on Human Spaceflight is offering everyone a last chance to provide their ideas on the future of the human spaceflight program via a Twitter chat tomorrow, October 29, 2013.
This is the first time the NRC is using social media to obtain input from the public. Anyone who wants to participate should tweet their ideas using the hashtag #humansinspace.
Input will be accepted during a 27 hour period on October 29 -- from midnight Eastern Daylight Time through the next midnight Pacific Daylight Time.
The NRC solicited ideas from the public this summer; they are available on the NRC's website. This is a final opportunity for the public to participate as the committee nears the end of its deliberations.
This time the NRC is asking for responses to the question: What are your best ideas for creating a NASA human spaceflight program that is sustainable over the next several decades.
The NRC is hoping to stimulate "a rapid exchange of ideas" among participants. Be sure to use the #humansinspace hashtag.
