NASA Sets TV Briefing Today to Discuss Space Station Status

HOUSTON - NASA managers will discuss the status of the International Space Station, including the latest on an external cooling loop leak that developed Thursday, during a televised briefing today at 3 p.m. CDT (4 p.m. EDT).

The news briefing will take place at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. It will air live on NASA Television and the agency's website.

Journalists may ask questions from participating NASA locations and through a phone bridge by calling the Johnson newsroom at 281-483-5111 no later than 2:45 p.m.

Mission managers have spent the day reviewing data on the leak, which is located on the station's far port truss, and whether to conduct a spacewalk Saturday to investigate the leak. A final decision on the possible spacewalk is expected later today.

The news briefing participants are:
- Michael Suffredini, International Space Station Program manager
- Norm Knight, NASA chief flight director
