Media captionLive The Story: David Shukman

What's it like to 'live the story' during a major news event? To help bring the viewer close to the heart of BBC News reporting we will be holding a series of special Q & A sessions on Twitter with our global correspondents.

Space shuttle Atlantis was launched into history when it went onto its final mission on the 8th of July 2011. Upon its return, the 30-year space shuttle programme came to a close.

In the second of a series of live Twitter Q & A sessions, David will be answering your questions about his experience of reporting on the space shuttle's last launch.

David will take your questions about what it was like to cover a major news event and will shed light on some of the main challenges he faced.

He will answer your questions directly from his Twitter account on Wednesday, 3 April, between 14:00 and 15:00 GMT.

If you have questions for David you can tweet them, or get in touch by any of the other ways listed below.

Here are the ways you can take part:

Text your question, beginning '#AskBBCDavid' to 61124 (in the UK) or +44 7624 800 100 (outside the UK).

When it's over, we'll publish the questions and answers featured in the Twitter session on this page of our website.

Although David will try to answer as many questions as he can, he won't get to all of them.

Questions will be tweeted immediately before the answer, and might therefore be edited for brevity.
