Update: NASA Revises Time for Space Station Crew News Conference
HOUSTON -- NASA has revised the time for a news conference on Tuesday, Sept. 6, with the two agency astronauts aboard the International Space Station. The briefing, broadcast live on NASA Television, will begin at 9:30 a.m. CDT.
Reporters may ask questions in person from NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Kennedy Space Center in Florida and the agency's headquarters in Washington. The phone bridge at Johnson will be available for reporters to participate by calling the newsroom at 281-483-5111 by 9:15 a.m.
NASA astronauts Ron Garan and Mike Fossum are members of Expedition 28 aboard the space station. The crew members will be available to discuss the status of the station and their ongoing expedition research.
Because of the Aug. 24 failure of the Russian Progress 44 launch, Garan will return to Earth on Sept. 15 (Sept. 16 in Kazakhstan). He originally was scheduled to land on Sept. 8. Fossum will remain in space until mid November.
