Houston, We Have A Shareef

I'm in Houston, and I'll be reporting live from another one of my favorite events - NASA socialAs usual, I'll be tweeting from @ShareefJackson using the #NASASocial hashtag - check it out!  I'll bring the latest news even though I'm surrounded by the wonders of Whataburgers and various BBQ places. I even drove past a place named Hot Biscuit ... hmmm ...

This time, I'll get to speak with the crew of Expedition 36, who will be heading up the International Space Station in May of 2013 via the Russian Soyuz spacecraft.

I'll also get a behind the scenes view of Johnson Space Center, including Mission Control and the Robonaut lab. There are autonomous robots that help NASA with many tasks, including one on the space station itself!

Robonaut ISS Checkout

Mission Control is where they coordinate flights once they have been launched, and of course we all know "Houston, We Have A Problem"
