To Twitter-finity and Beyond!

Astronaut, Mike Massimino, is the first person to ever post to the popular micro-blogging service Twitter from space. He's currently on the space shuttle Atlantis heading to make repairs to the Hubble Space Telescope.

You can follow Mike Massimino on Twitter by his username, Astro_Mike.

Apparently, he does not have his Blackberry with him on Atlantis. He often posts to Twitter with it using Twitterberry. Those roaming charges were probably too much to handle. This post was done from the Twitter web site.

Thank goodness there wasn't a fail whale out when he posted!
