If your passion is to communicate and engage the world via social media, this is the event for you! Seize the opportunity to be on the front line to blog, tweet or Instagram everything about SpaceX’s 14th mission to the space station. The deadline for applications is Sunday, March 11, with notifications going to those who are chosen no later than March 15.
In addition to supplies and equipment, the Dragon spacecraft will deliver a number of the ISS National Lab-sponsored science investigations to the International Space Station, including a platform that will be attached to the outside of the ISS designed to test the way different compounds react in the harsh environment of space. Findings from this investigation could be used everywhere from paint studies in the the automotive industry to designing better spacesuits.
