European Space Tweetup in Cologne -First NASA Mission Mascot to officially visit the European Space Agency and the DLRGerman Aerospace Center
Cologne, Germany (September 13, 2011) - The German Aerospace Center (DLR) and theEuropean Space Agency (ESA) have invited 60 Twitter followers to the first joint EuropeanSpace Tweetup as part of German Aerospace Day on September 18, 2011 in Cologne Germany.A Tweetup is an informal, educational gathering of people who use the social media platformTwitter. The participants will have a chance to learn more about the two agencies and theiractivities, while sharing their impressions live via Twitter.This event is not only the first joint European Space Tweetup, but it is also the first official visitof the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) mission mascot Camilla Corona SDO to ESAand DLR. Even though Camilla is a rubber chicken, her goal is to educate children about theSun, Space Weather, Space and Science, and to encourage them to pursue careers in science,engineering or aeronautics. As part of her outreach, Camilla SDO attends various events to learnand share her new knowledge and impressions.In May 2011 Camilla SDO and her crew Pilot Fuzz Aldrin and Mission Specialist Skye Bleutraveled in a weather balloon to the Edge of Space. Due to high jet stream winds the BTS-1(Balloon Transportation System, 1
Flight) landed further East than anticipated and was lost for5 days in the swamp area of Sabine National Wildlife Refuge in Louisiana. Thanks to the effortsof the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services at Sabine National Wildlife Refuge the capsule and crewwere found and recovered, making it the first ever mascot crew to reach the darkness of the Edgeof Space and spend a week waiting for rescue in a swamp.NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) is designed to help us understand the Sun'sinfluence on Earth and Near-Earth space by studying the solar atmosphere on small scales of space and time and in many wavelengths simultaneously. SDO's goal is to understand, drivingtowards a predictive capability, the solar variations that influence life on Earth and humanity'stechnological systems by determining
how the Sun's magnetic field is generated and structured
how this stored magnetic energy is converted and released into the heliosphere andgeospace in the form of solar wind, energetic particles, and variations in the solarirradianceNASA SDO Website:http://sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/
