Tateru Nino has written a great overview article about NASA CoLab in Second Life. The article is in the SL blog at Massively.com (which covers many virtual worlds and MMORPGs). (That blog used to be called Second Life Insider but they changed the name when they moved over to the new site.)

You’re invited to join NASA leadership, astronauts, scientists, and engineers along with local business, technology and academic leaders and local, state and federal officials discuss the role of space exploration in advancing science, engineering, technology, education and the economy that benefits your community and the nation.

I was one of a dozen avs who burned part or all of 4 hours inworld Wed March 19th while Earth Primbee shot footage for his 2nd CoLab machinama vid.  A big thanks to all those who responded to the Space Riggers’ call for volunteers!
