NASA Updates Media on Status of COTS Project Thursday
WASHINGTON - Thursday, NASA will provide an update about the status of the agency's Commercial Orbital Transportation Services Project, also known as COTS.

NASA will host a news media roundtable at 2:30 p.m. EDT at NASA Headquarters, 300 E St., S.W., Washington. Alan Lindenmoyer, manager of the Commercial Crew and Cargo Program at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, will participate in the briefing.
