NASAgram: Space Goes Social

The cosmos is a busy place: thanks to the public-relations efforts of NASA’s social media department we can participate in NASA’s efforts to explore, utilize and colonize space more than ever before, encountering otherworldly images of space in feeds more known for selfies, dinner pics, and photo bombs. At the same time, the NASA Instagram feed also embraces the medium, incorporating selfies and other social-media tropes to produce a singular mix of the sublime and the mundane. Coming soon: Google glasses worn by the first Mars-bound pioneers, live-streaming mankind’s outer-space migration into a global spectacle.
