The clock is ticking. With just three days left for the big day, staff members at the German Aerospace Center, DLR, in Cologne are working intensely to have everything set up.
Excitement is building up as the DLR/ESA #SocialSpace tent is being lifted and the exciting programme fine-tuned.
You won’t know what we have in store for you until Sunday, but we want to give you a sneak peek of how things are looking in Cologne.

Look familiar? Yes, it’s our soon-to-be very own #SocialSpace tent. It shouldn't be long now.
That’s all for now. See you all soon…
... the place where ILAtweetup 2012 will take place. OK, it doesn't look very fancy yet, but it sure will - in a bit more than a week from now. Expect rocket scientists, astronauts and many more to rock the stage!
'Which stage?' you might ask ... we'll post updates as they arrive!

Our brand new #ILAtweetup hoodies have arrived and they're almost on their way to our Tweetup room at ILA Berlin. Looking great, huh?!

This blog has been quiet for some time. But with the upcoming #ILAtweetup it will come back to life.
The Social Media teams at ESA and DLR are working hard to create a unique experience. Embedded into one of Europe's biggest air shows, we will host 50 tweeps and will spend a fantastic day with them.
Expect some insights into European Space research and to meet some members of the European Astronaut Corps who will share their experiences.
Invitations will be sent tomorrow.
All of you who did not have the chance to get invited for this ILAtweetup, will still be able to participate. Via this blog, twitter or maybe even a video livestream.
I am looking forward to meet new space enthusiasts and to see some familiar faces of our ever growing spacetweep family.

The DLR German Aerospace Center and the European Space Agency are inviting 60 Twitter followers to the first joint European Space Tweetup as part of German Aerospace Day on 18 September in Cologne, Germany.
A Tweetup is an informal, educational gathering of people who use the Twitter social messaging medium.
The first joint Space Tweetup of DLR and ESA will be an opportunity to learn more about the two agencies and their activities.
