On Thursday, 23-April, I had the privilege of attending a NASA Social Media Event at the Newseum in Washington, DC and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope.
NASA Social is "a program to provide opportunities for NASA's social media followers to learn and share information about NASA's missions, people, and programs. NASA Social is the next evolution in the agency’s social media efforts. Formerly called NASA Tweetup, NASA Social program includes both special in-person events and social media credentials for individuals who share the news in a significant way. This program has brought thousands of people together for unique social media experiences of exploration and discovery."
Please join me and my guest host and fellow NASA Social Alum Kathie Hagen as we talk about our experiences at NASA Social Events, the awesomeness of Hubble and it's successor, the James Webb Space Telescope, the future of space exploration and use of social media in generating public interest.
CALL US at 516-387-1639 to join the conversation!

Studio SPJ will kick off a series of podcasts called "The Road to Nashville" previewing our upcoming Excellence in Journalism 2014 conference on Sept. 4-6.
Ken Paulson will be our guest for the first of these broadcasts on Thursday at 3 p.m. / 2 p.m. Central time. (Please note: this program was rescheduled from an earlier broadcast date.)
Paulson is the dean of Middle Tennessee State University's College of Mass Communication. He previously has served a president of the First Amendment Center at Vanderbilt University, as president of the Newseum in Washington D.C. and as editor-in-chief at USA Today.
We'll be talking to Ken about Freedom Sings, a musical program at the convention featuring songs that were once banned as well as the tribute planned for the late John Seigenthaler, the former editor of The Tennessean and founder of the First Amendment Center.
My goal is not about changing freedom of speech, it's about the abuse of the First Amendment and why laws where put into place to prevent such abuse.
“It’s valuable to know the five freedoms of the First Amendment —religion, speech, press, assembly and petition —but it’s even more important to know how we can use them,” said Gene Policinski, chief operating officer of the Newseum Institute. “As a nation, we must better prepare our fellow and future citizens for the hard decision of defending core freedoms against those who would damage or limit them by violence or by law.”
One woman with one challenge to make changes against cyber crimes. Barbara Farris the first woman ever, to agree with the destruction of her own name and reputation. Barbara spent several years traveling threw many States and Cities to prove how the internet characterizes a person. Barbara proves how social media and google have become a weapon to destroy many lives.
Barbara Farris has recorded each event for the purpose to publish a book "Ripple Effect of America's Perception". Barbara entered into many towns under a different name letting individuals get to know her as a person.
Once her identity became revealed when she was googled, Barbara was treated horribly by people. Even harassed by local authorities in certain cities which will be disclosed in her book.
Celebrate the 100th episode of Travel Itch Radio with a very special show Thursday at 8p on iTunes and BlogTalkRadio.com. Join Dan and Christine as they revisit The Newseum, the World War 2 Museum, Historic Hotels of America, and The Phoenician. See you on the radio!
