STS-61 CREW IN-FLIGHT PRESS CONFERENCE SET FOR DEC. 12
The STS-61 crew aboard Space Shuttle Endeavour will hold an in-flight news conference on Sunday, December 12, 1993 at 1:02 a.m. EST. They will take questions from the news media on the events and activities connected with NASA's first servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope.
The two NASA centers who will have active participation in the press conference will be the Kennedy Space Center, Fla. and the Johnson Space Center, Houston. News media who wish to participate in the event must be at the press site at one of those locations. News media in the Washington, D.C. area can monitor the event at the news center at Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.
In an effort to allow the maximum number of participants at KSC and JSC, news media participating in the event are asked to follow the guidelines listed below.
o News media must sign up with the NASA news center at KSC or JSC in
advance of the event. There is no guarantee that everyone who signs up will be
able to ask the crew a question.
o News media should be at the news center and in place ready to begin at least 15
minutes before the start of the event. There is a chance that the event could start
a few minutes early.- more -

o Due to the limited amount of time for the event, reporters will be limited to one
question only. No follow-up.
o When asking your question, please begin it by identifying which crew member it
is directed toward. This will give the crew time to pass the microphone to that
person. In order to allow the maximum number of questions possible, please do
not ask questions that require a response from the whole crew.
The STS-61 crew in-flight press conference event will be carried on NASA Select television which is available on Satcom F-2R, Transponder 13, located at 72 degrees west longitude; frequency 3960.0 MHz, audio 6.8 MHz.###
