Astronaut Sends Tweet From Space

Astronauts Get Internet in Space Station, Tweet About It

We may very well take for granted the fact that we have access to infinite information on the Internet everyday. However, when you're high above earth in the International Space Station, the luxury of sending a tweet can be a pretty great thing.

Timothy Creamer, who has been living on the Space Station since December, sent his first live tweet this morning, thanks to a high-speed wireless connection and screen sharing with mission control. By sharing screens (a laptop in space that mirrors a desktop on the ground), the crew can browse the web, send emails, and chat with people on the ground. The whole crew will be getting in on the tweeting action and hosting Q&A over Twitter soon — so let out your inner space nerd and tweet them your questions!
