KSC To Officially Open New Web Broadcasting Facility
 
 
At 2:00 p.m. on Monday, February 11, a ribbon cutting ceremony will mark the opening of Kennedy Space Center's new Web Broadcasting Facility at the Press Site.

The new facility, which incorporates a TV studio, will use live broadcasting via the World Wide Web and exclusive programming to bring the public closer to KSC than ever before. Interested space fans from around the world will be able to follow launches, landings and other KSC events in a real-time environment. Adding to the excitement and educational value, an interactive chat feature will allow anyone watching to submit a question to be answered by featured experts.

Located in the News Center at the KSC Press Site, the Web Broadcasting Facility is an example of the cooperation and teamwork between NASA and its contractor teammates to create an informative and enjoyable product that will encourage online visitors to stay tuned.

Speakers at the ribbon cutting ceremony will include KSC Center Director Roy Bridges; District Director Brian Chase, attending on behalf of U.S. Congressman David Weldon; and KSC's Director of External Relations and Business Development, JoAnn Morgan.
