For the first time ever, NASA is holding a liftoff Tweetup. The first 100 NASA Twitter followers who sign up will get a tour of Kennedy Space Center and a front-row seat for Atlantis' launch. Registration opens Friday.
NASA has had Tweetups before, but never for a shuttle launch. NASA says it wants to share the excitement of a shuttle launch with a new audience. Astronauts have been filing Twitter updates since spring, from both Earth and orbit.
