Twitter and the MESSENGER Flyby


NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft has had many firsts. Among these firsts (other than the actual science mission) is the impact that social media has had on perception of the mission. Twitter, in particular, has had a large presence in the MESSENGER coverage. Many of the scientists and fellows involved in the actual flyby have been "tweeting" their updates of what's happening, live. Never before have so many people been directly notified of such enormous details of NASA missions. One such Twitter user is @porchdragon. He also has a blog, called DragonPhysics, where he writes:

A crowded room room filled with a large center table. MESSENGER Fellows occupy that table looking at their laptops. People surrounding them eating and talking with each other. The Fellows are introduced to everyone as they come in – and their role in this event is explained.”To broadcast to the world what is happening here at the flyby.”

tips menggugurkan kandungan seperti apa sih ? Menggunakan tindakan medis seperti Kuret adalah langkah yang terbaik dalam mengakhiri kehamilan . Meskipun banyak beredar di media internet yang menyatakan cara menggugurkan kandungan 100 berhasil dengan bahan alami dengan munggunakan buah pepaya muda maupun nanas muda ataupun dengan bahan tradisional bumbu dapur seperti mengkonsumsi jahe maupun kunyit asam dan adapula yang mempercayai cara menggugurkan kandungan dengan asam jawa , Entah itu hanya sebuah mitos atau opini yang mungkin kebetulan saja . Pahami juga alat kelamin wanita dan fungsinya agar dapat menjaga , merawat dan merapatkan miss v biar menambah keintiman didalam hubungan rumah tangga .
