Norwich man to appear on The One Show ahead of NASA launch

A student from Norwich is set to make an appearance on a popular television show tomorrow night.

Jack Dearlove, from Sprowston, will appear on BBC One's The One Show (7pm) to talk about his upcoming participation in a 'tweetup' for NASA at the latest space shuttle launch.

The 20-year-old University of Leeds journalism student is the only person from England to have been chosen from a ballot of over 4,000 people to use social networking sites such as Twitter to describe the launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour to the world on April 29, live from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.
