Our Principal is Going Behind the Scenes at Shuttle Discovery Launch

There is a modern day Golden Ticket contest and it is called #NasaTweetup. For followers of @NASA on Twitter,  the agency randomly selected 150 people to attend the final launch of shuttle Discovery.  I won that  Golden Ticket… but not right away. I didn’t win in the first round, I was wait listed. People who won had to decline or simply not register. NASA then randomly selected from the 150 wait listers. I waited an entire week, fate just testing how much I wanted to go to get behind the scene tours of Kennedy Space Center, meet astronauts, and talk with real shuttle experts (see more about #NASATweetup here http://bit.ly/96okQV).  Now I am clearing the four step credentials process…

This is the second to last launch ever of the shuttle, STS-133, and I get to be there.  I am stupid happy and will be tweeting like mad. I hope some of you join me.
