This is kind of interesting. I wonder if he will entertain questions about ETs? I am going to follow him and maybe send him a question or two.

He probably won't say anything but maybe we can make him slip up and leak some info.

Call him @Astro_Mike. That's the latest digital moniker of NASA astronaut Michael Massimino, who has invited the world to tag along via the Twitter micro-blogging Web site as he trains for a May space shuttle mission to overhaul the Hubble Space Telescope.

Hmmm, I just tried to add him and it says there is no one by that name. I smell a conspiracy! Maybe he was told by NASA to shut it down. Weird.

I could not find him either. I even looked under his full name. That sucks, I was going to add him too. Why run such a story if he doesnt have a real account? Something weird about this story.

OK, I did some searching, and after googling, found his page and am now following him. Here is the link to his page on Twitter:

Astro_Mike is in orbit right now.

Spacewalking to fix the Hubble.

Hey, Mike, see any aliens up there?

You can use internet in space? Cool. So he just connects his laptop or phone to some universe wifi network and starts surfing? :S Or somebody does it for him on earth?

Heard off BBC Radio 1 news that astromike just relays info back to mission control and someone transcribes it to Twitter on their computer.
