Collectively the winners will share informative tweets about what is happening during the launch with their 3.7 million followers, along with NASA‘s one million followers.

In return, they will receive a tour of NASA’s press centre, watch a space suit demonstration and have the opportunity to speak with NASA’s chief scientist Waleed Abdalatiand astronaut Clay Anderson.
