here are some pictures from the first austrian #marstweetup – a twitter event that gave 16 space-enthusiastic twitter users from all over europe a deeper insight in to the ongoings of a live mars simulation. the event took place inside the world’s largest accessible ice cave in dachstein, austria.
it was very cool to get a glimpse of various ongoing space projects at once, such as Austrian Space Forum’s Aouda.X mars analog suit, Part-Time Scientists’ Asimov R3 rover, polish MAGMA rover and others.
the tweetup was also a good opportunity to get to know some fun AND tech-savvy space-enthusiasts (you can follow them on twitter), and alltogether a great day to be had. :)
