Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

If you have ever felt the need to discuss highly technical rocket science 140 characters at a time, this is your big day.

NASA has officially launched (get it!) a Twitter feed. Or whatever they call those things.

There have been sporadic posts on the Twitter page before now as part of a soft launch (still get it?), but starting today they will be more regular.

"At starbucks. crowded. And Saturn's Dynamic Moon Enceladus Shows More Signs of Activity" a typical entry doesn't say (Except for that last part).

Most of the tweets so far include links to more detailed discussions, which seems eminently reasonable.

Among the items posted so far are stuff on dark matter, oceanography and a rocket test.

No updates yet on where lunch will be.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
