Media Accreditation Open For NASA's Mars Science Lab Launch
 
 
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Media accreditation for the launch of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity rover is open. Liftoff aboard an Atlas V rocket from Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida is targeted for Nov. 25 at 10:21 a.m. EST.

International media representatives without U.S. citizenship must apply for credentials by Oct. 18 because the U.S. Air Force requires 30 days to process those requests. For U.S. journalists, the application deadline is Nov. 18.

All media accreditation requests must be submitted online at:

https://media.ksc.nasa.gov


For questions about accreditation or additional information, contact the Press Site at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 321-867-2468.

The launch opportunity for the laboratory extends through Dec. 18. For more information about the mission, visit:
