satellite tweeting

We already know that an astronaut beat us to the punch in sending the first tweet from space, and now it seems that even Satellites are hopping on the addictive Twitter bandwagon. The Nakasuka Lab at the University of Tokyo has introduced the ability to tweet to its CubeSat XI-V. The tweets might be slightly mundane as it tends to focus on what the temperature is, occasionally sending a picture back, though we are hoping that it will tweet something about aliens, that would make things fun, wouldn’t it? If you understand Japanese, you can check out the Twitter feed and see what’s going on. Drop us a line if it reports sightings of little green men.
