Google+ Mars Travel: YOU Can Use Social Media to Inspire Others to Take an Interest in Space

YOU Can Use Social Media to Inspire Others to Take an Interest in Space

Do you want to help inspire others to take an interest in space exploration? What's stopping you?

What, you thought you had to be a rocket scientist or billionaire to make a difference in the space industry?

Well you don't. Anyone can help inspire other people to take an interest in space exploration.

Below are some suggestions on how you can use your interest in space to inspire others using social and new media!

  • The easiest, least time consuming way is to begin posting about space on your social media accounts, like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or any other ones you have. If you read a cool space article then share it with people! Sometimes people aren't interested in space because they aren't exposed to all the fascinating news or images about it! 
    • So many space-related sites (including this one) make it incredibly easy to post their articles to your Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social media accounts! If your friends/followers see that you are interested in an article then maybe they'll check it out and become interested too!
  •  You can start a blog about space that showcases some of the cool things you find when bored and perusing the Internet.
    • Once you start doing this you might start seeking out really cool things to post to your blog. You'll probably learn more about space by doing this than you ever thought possible. (I know because I learn something everyday while finding content for my Mars Photo of the Day.)
  • If you are interested in a particular aspect of space you can write a blog centered around it. (This is what I did when I realized there weren't that many regularly updated blogs on Mars.)
    • There are numerous Space sites that cover all aspects of space, but a lot of times you will find some specific space topics that do not have their own site dedicated to them.
    • If you have a blog you will also have content for your social media accounts!
  • Try to create content, either on a blog or through social media, that will appeal to an audience other than the typical space enthusiasts.
    • If you can make space appeal to people with seemingly unrelated interests like art, entertainment, etc., then you could inspire even more people to be interested in space that might not otherwise have been.
YOU can inspire others to take an interest in space.  There are so many amazing discoveries to be made in space, but they are dependent on space enthusiasts spreading the word and inspiring others to take an interest. The more people interested in space the more support there will be for future space research and exploration.

You will be amazed at the number of people you can inspire to take an interest in space through social and new media. You'll also have a lot of fun doing it and find tons of people that share the same interest in space as you! Give it a shot; you will probably be surprised at what you find.
