Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
This Thursday, January 29, NASA is scheduled to launch the “Soil Moisture Active Passive” (SMAP) mission, designed to provide the most accurate, highest-resolution global measurements of soil moisture ever obtained from space.
Envision social media expert Spencer Burgos, a long-time evangelist of unique learning experiences for high school students, was chosen to attend the launch events in person in order to share the opportunity in real-time via social media. Interacting with NASA personnel at Vandenberg for the site tour and Delta II rocket launch, Burgos will document every moment of this event in live video, photos and commentary, available to the public via Envision’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
