Astronauts get Internet access: Tweet from space


That’s a huge step on the Internet revolutions! Remember Anousheh Ansari, the first person ever to blog from space? Now T.J. Creamer (@Astro_TJ) is the first tweeple from the space station! Bravo!

In far reaching developments, NASA astronauts now have personal internet web access and are tweeting from space. So you might want to follow NASA on Twitter and get space updates now.

NASA confirmed that astronauts aboard the International Space Station have received personal access to the Internet.

This personal Web access, called the Crew Support LAN, takes advantage of existing communication links to and from the station and gives astronauts the ability to browse and use the Web. The system will provide astronauts with direct private communications to enhance their quality of life during long-duration missions by helping to ease the isolation associated with life in a closed environment.
