Taking Up Space


My co-worker Heather’s official NASA blog is now online.

Actually, the first post published earlier this month, but we’ve been publicizing it very gradually. I was going to write this before going on my trip, because she included me in a post, but I didn’t get a chance before leaving.

The blog is “Taking Up Space,” a rather clever play on words that we’re fairly pleased with. Heather will be writing blog entries about student events and opportunities, and just about cool NASA stuff that strikes her fancy.

Finally seeing the blog online has been an awesome experience. It’s the result of a lot of planning and a lot of hard work making it happen. Heather wrote another, limited-run NASA blog last year, Free Falling, about her flight on a Zero-G aircraft. The new blog has been in planning for a good chunk of that last year, and we’ve both put a fair bit of time and effort into making it happen, with a huge amount of support from the education technology team. Getting this far has been a labor of love, and I look forward to seeing where it goes from here.

I’m excited about the project, and about seeing what Heather will be writing. Taking Up Space will provide a new twist on the stories we’ve been covering, and should make for some interesting reading. Check it out! We hope you enjoy it!
