That's one small tweet for man, one giant tweet for mankind.

The virtual realm has physically expanded once again as Timothy Creamer a.k.a. Astro_TJ made Twitter history by being the first person to tweet live from space.

Quote: twitter.com/NASA_Astronauts: "Hello Twitterverse! We r now LIVE tweeting from the International Space Station -- the 1st live tweet from Space! (cont)"

@worldoffacts thanks for pointing that out. It should have stated: First LIVE tweet from space. Check: http://www.blogherald.com/2009/05/13/first-tweet-from-space-isnt-really-from-space/

Cool, but not so sure about the claim. Jose Hernandez (http://twitter.com/astro_jose) was twatting from "Space" during the last Discovery mission in September.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
