NASA Media Accreditation Underway for Return to Flight Milestones
 
 
NASA has started news media accreditation for two of the most important milestones for the Return to Flight of the Space Shuttle fleet.

Media accreditation is under way for the Space Shuttle Discovery's move to the Vehicle Assembly Building. The second event is the roll out to Launch Pad 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC). Both events are planned for later this month.

Media without KSC credentials should submit their separate accreditation requests for each event via the new online accreditation Web site at:

https://media.ksc.nasa.gov/

Foreign nationals must submit requests no later than two weeks prior to events. Access is granted on a first-requested basis.

Accreditation is also underway for Discovery's Return to Flight, targeted for launch on May 15, with a launch window that extends to June 3.

Since dates and times of events are subject to change, updates are available by calling: 321/867-2525.
