Yesterday the Mars 500 tweetup took place in Rome and I had the opportunity to meet Diego Urbina (@diegou on Twitter) and Romain Charles (@Romain_CHARLES) of the Mars500 crew and to know a lot of space-geeks and enthusiastic people from all Europe and beyond.
In the weekend I will take some time to write down something about this awesome experience and to talk about Mars500 mission as it was communicated by Diego and Romain.
In the meanwhile these are some interesting links to know more about this experiment and about the tweetup.
The first one is the Mars 500 Storify page by ESA, where you can find the entire story of this mission:
Then you can watch the replay of the Mars500 press conference in Paris:
At last some Flickr sets of the Rome event.

Thanks to Diego, Romain, Erica, Daniel, Maria, and all ESA staff who made this possible.
