It’s true.

Call him @Astro_Mike. That’s the latest digital moniker of NASA astronaut Michael Massimino, who has invited the world to tag along via the Twitter micro-blogging Web site as he trains for a May space shuttle mission to overhaul the Hubble Space Telescope.

Massimino, a veteran spacewalker and Hubble repairman, is set to make his second trip to the iconic orbital observatory when he and six other astronauts launch toward Hubble on May 12 aboard NASA’s space shuttle Atlantis. The risky 11-day mission will include five spacewalks and expected to extend Hubble’s lifetime through at least 2014.
