I see the coolest things on Twitter. Things I probably would never have discovered otherwise. Some of it I could have probably done without (now it’s just like space junk floating around in my head taking up valuable space) but some of it is interesting and entertaining. Best of all, some of it is perfect for sparking new story ideas!So here are 10 fun tweets about space that I found recently on Twitter. I will not vouch 100% for their authenticity (-:
