Did you know that NASA launced a spacecraft last week? OSIRIS-Rex will be the first spacecraft to rendezvous with an asteroid, and Ms. Searcy, one of our TAG teachers, was there to cover the launch as part of the NASA Social Media Team. In addition to being on the front row for the launch, she had two days behind-the-scenes touring NASA facilities and meeting with scientists, engineers, and astronauts.
Look at her Tweets and you will see all the wonderful things she was able to experience. The easiest way to access her Twitter feed (@searcytag) is to go to her website: searcytag.weebly.com where the Twitter feed appears on the home page.
The launch occured Thursday night, September 8th at 7:30 p.m.
