"From orbit: Launch was awesome!! I am feeling great, working hard, & enjoying the magnificent views, the adventure of a lifetime has begun!"
This was the very first tweet that 2 days ago started a new history of the Twitter, when the first tweet of @Astro_Mike came from the atmosphere to our twittersphere.Mike Massimo is part of a seven person crew of Atlantis shuttle, on his second second space flight to Hubble.
Although some people wrote that astronaut Mark Polansky is tweeting from space too, he will be on the next shuttle, STS-127 launching on 13 June. Exciting thing is that he is going to answer questions from orbit.
