Orion EFT-1 : It’s a BFD

Orion EFT-1 : It’s a BFD

I’m at NASA Johnson Space Center for a #NASASocial event for the #Orion EFT-1 Test Launch tomorrow morning (12/4/2014) at “dark thirty” (7:05 EST).

NASA Director Charlie Bolden said today that “Orion EFT-1 is a BFD.” You can truly sense the excitement that this new flight system is bringing back to NASA.

I will be posting much media later in the day… the fine Public Affairs folks at NASA are keeping us hopping; I hope to share more, when they let us up for air!

Witness History: Orion Test Launch

Witness History: Orion Test Launch

Early this morning, I received notification that I was selected to attend one of the NASA Social meetups (scheduled for December 3, 2014), prior to the test flight of their Orion Spacecraft.

Excited?

You betcha!

I was also one of the 100 (or so) lucky folks to attend the very first NASA Tweetup, for the STS-129 launch, way back in November of 2009.

And, living in the wilds of Arkansas these past four years, I’m having some serious space-coast withdrawals.

A very special thank you to the social media folks at NASA for this fantastic opportunity.

Now – where’s the best place to stay in Houston near JSC?
