Update: NASA Provides Media Interviews For Space Station National Lab Award
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- NASA has canceled the previously scheduled news conference on Friday, Sept. 9, about the award of the organization that will manage the portion of the International Space Station operated as a U.S. national laboratory. The briefing was canceled because the launch of the agency's GRAIL mission has been postponed until Friday morning.

NASA will offer in-person media interview opportunities at 10 a.m. EDT on Friday at NASA Kennedy Space Center's Press Site in Florida. Reporters already on-site for the GRAIL launch will be able to interview:
- Waleed Abdalati, NASA chief scientist
- Mark Uhran, assistant associate administrator for the International Space Station
- Jeanne Becker, CASIS executive director
