About Earthbridges and Earthcast

The Earthbridges Community is happy to report that we're actively preparing for Earthcast 2014, which is a live, global webcast that will take place on April 22, 2014. This is the seventh year in a row that the Earthbridges community will be involved in the production of this event and we hope to build upon our successes of the past in many ways. During previous Earthcasts, we had contributions from people on many different continents broadcasting in several different languages. We hope to have even more participation from more people around the globe during this year's Earthcast. Additional information is available on the Earthcast wikispace. http://earthbridges.wikispaces.com/ Keep checking back for updates and to view the schedule to plan how you and your students can participate in this exciting event. Thank you for your support!

Earthbridges is part of the Worldbridges Community. http://worldbridges.net

Space Shuttle Discovery Launch (Almost) Part 1 of 2

150 people were chosen around the world to participate in NASA's Tweetup at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA. I was one lucky participant. Two full days of activities were planned for us that culminated in the launch of STS-133, Discovery space shuttle. Unfortunately, there were delays for several days and eventually it was postponed until November 30, 2010 (4 am). Although we didn't see the launch, we did get to see and do things at KSC that most people don't.
