It's our eleventh year! The Earthbridges Community is happy to report that Earthcast, which is a live, global webcast that will take place on April 20, 2018, two (school) days before Earth Day. Earthcast18 will be our eleventh year that the Earthbridges community has been involved in the production of this event and we hope to build upon our successes of the past in many ways.

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.
