Journey to Atlantis

I was going to write a blog post about the epic adventure that was yesterday’s Journey to Atlantis. But I decided, why not use the bits of data and writing that have already been created through social media.

Enjoy this storify of our trip.

For the record, @DesignLightning & I earned our Storm Trooper stripes today. We’re survivors here in #NYC #HurricaneSandy! #NASASocialCindy Chin
It is with great sadness that I say the flight options came to nothing, and I will not be at #NASASocial. I hope everyone else enjoys it!Alexandra White

One week. One week until it’s time. <br> Nothing can accurately describe my excitement.
I think I may have the best luck in the world. NASA Tweetup for Atlantis? Meetups with scientists and engineers? This is unreal.
