Think watching TV from the comfort of your couch, bed, or other tablet-friendly spot is cool? Try watching it from underneath the shiny belly of historic NASA orbiter Space Shuttle Enterprise.
Last week, we hosted the first-ever Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) Tweet-Up on board the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, a signature partner in NYC for our company’s philanthropic science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) initiative. Joining us for the event were active followers of the @ConnectMinds Twitter handle, CAMM partners 826 National and FIRST Robotics, and science and technology media from Scientific American Magazine, Huffington Post Science, Mashable and more.
During the tweet-up, which was held in the Time Warner Cable-sponsored Space Shuttle Pavilion, home to Enterprise, guests enjoyed a premiere screening of TV science digest It Ain’t Rocket Science. Following the sneak peek, guests toured the Pavilion, which was recently restored following damage from Hurricane Sandy. In addition to tweeting out photos and trivia about the shuttle (hashtag #rocketscience), tweeters scoped out the recently installed Soyuz Russian spacecraft and geeky space nostalgia, like an original James Bond “Moonraker” board game.
Watch a recap of the event, which included remarks from NY1 Tech Reporter and It Ain’t Rocket Science host Adam Balkin, Time Warner Cable President and Chief Operations Officer Rob Marcus, and Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum President Susan Marenoff-Zausner.
Enjoy the same episode of It Ain’t Rocket Science that premiered at the tweet-up, and features exclusive interviews with actor and science enthusiast Alan Alda and Apple’s youngest app developer Jordan Casey, by visiting the It Ain’t Rocket Science full episode archive on connectamillionminds.com.
