CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) - NASA, which has tiptoed into the new world of social media with Twittering astronauts and Facebooking rovers, is taking the next step with an invitation-only outreach to "the twedia" to cover a space shuttle launch.

This looks very interesting. Are NASA opening up in any way?

It would fantastic if ATS could get involved in this somehow.

It also demonstrates how new media seems to being embraced by the 'establishment' to a point. I think this could be a particularly good oportunity to get up close to NASA and speak to them about the anomalies that pop up on every STS mission.

ATS is a twittering media outlet. As such, we could possibly get there - get asking the questions of NASA that others simply won't ask.

I think that this is a good move from NASA, although, to be honest, part of me is thinking that they may have some agenda - like keeping the bloggers and microbloggers away from the rest of the media.

What do you think guys? A potential good idea here for sites like ATS, or a publicity stunt?

I think we have a good opp here.

Peace,

MGGG
