Foursquare geoservice, known to many, took one small, but very important step. Step into space. Together with NASA, this social network now provides an opportunity to receive a new badge “NASA Explorer” for visiting the international space station.
The first person to receive the badge was cosmonaut Douglas H. Wheelock, which can be found on his twitter :
As reported on the Foursquare blog, every new station visitor will be able to receive such a badge.
In my sign event. Social networks go into orbit. Who knows, maybe visiting space will become an everyday reality already this century with the help of private orbital flights?
