EDWARDS, Calif. - NASA will host 75 social media followers May 4 to go behind-the-scenes and learn more about NASA aeronautics, science and other projects at the agency's Dryden Flight Research Center on Edwards Air Force Base in California.
Dryden is NASA's primary center for atmospheric flight research and operations. Its remote location in the western Mojave Desert is uniquely situated for excellent year-round weather and visibility to test innovative air vehicles.
The event begins at 7:30 a.m. PDT and will include tours of current aircraft and presentations on cutting-edge aeronautical research and science projects. Not only will guests learn about sonic booms, they could experience one first-hand.
