A NASA Social event is an informal meeting of people who engage with NASA social media accounts. Social events provide NASA followers with the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes at NASA facilities and events and speak with scientists, engineers, astronauts and managers. NASA Socials range from two hours to two days in length and include a “meet and greet” session to allow participants to mingle with fellow socialites and the people behind NASA’s social media accounts. NASA Social participants are randomly selected from those who register their interest for the event on the Web. Additional registrants are placed on a waiting list.
How do I register?
Do I need to have a social media account to register for a NASA Social?
Yes. NASA Socials are designed for social media users who follow @NASA on a variety of social media platforms. You can find all the ways to connect with NASA at the ‘Connect and Collaborate with NASA‘ page. The goal of NASA Socials is to allow people who regularly interact with each other via these platforms to meet in person and discuss one of their favorite subjects: NASA.
