Speaker Beth Beck, NASA’s Space Operations Outreach Manager, is passionate about communicating the drama and magic of humans in space. Beth, a social media addict, adopted Twitter early in 2007 as one of the first NASA users. She coordinated development of NASA’s Facebook, and developed NASA Buzzroom, the single source for conversations about NASA. She is instrumental in hosting NASA’s spaceflight mission Tweetups. Beth, one of the founders of the award-winning LAUNCH sustainability forums, created the program as an opportunity to make this world a better place while demonstrating the relevance between life on Earth and the extreme environment of space.
