ATLANTA - One local man is sharing his view of the historic mission - one tweet at a time.
Charles Atkeison of Atlanta saw the very first space shuttle launch as a boy. It's an experience he says inspired his love of space and science.
He now writes about the shuttle program professionally. But for the shuttle's final voyage Atkeison took on a different title - space "tweep."
NASA selected him from more than 5,000 applicants worldwide to tweet about what he sees and hears to his 881 followers.
Charles Atkeison's tweeting duties aren't over. He'll head to the Johnson Space Center and mission control to detail Atlantis' return to earth.
