NASA Astronaut "Checks In" To Foursquare...From Space!

Jealous?

NASA Astronaut "Checks In" To Foursquare...From Space!
 
 

Douglas C. Wheelock may just be the coolest astronaut ever because he's become the first one to use location-based social service Foursquare to log in his location from beyond the Earth's atmosphere.

He is "the first human to ever use a location-based service from space," wrote Foursquare's Eric Friedmon on the company's official blog.

For his crowning achievement, Wheelock received the one-of-a-kind NASA Explorer badge for his Foursquare profile.

In a move to regain popularity and wonder from the American public, NASA has been on a social media binge over the last several months, increasing its presence on Facebook and Twitter and even setting up its own official Foursquare account.

Additionally, last year the first official Tweet from outer space was posted, but something about actually using a location-specific app from space seems way cooler.

NASA did not have an official comment on the achievement, but they're probably planning something else exciting. We now just have to await when Google Street View goes to the moon.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
