NASA Opens Media Accreditation for Shuttle Endeavour Departure
 
 
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Media accreditation is open for activities surrounding space shuttle Endeavour's departure from NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida Sept. 17. Endeavour will be transported atop the NASA Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA), a modified 747 jet, and land at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on Sept. 20.

Journalists can cover a number of operations related to the ferry flight, beginning when the SCA arrives at the Shuttle Landing Facility runway Sept. 11. To accommodate processing times, international media representatives who want to cover the SCA arrival must apply for credentials by Aug. 29. For U.S. journalists, the application deadline is Sept. 7.

For international journalists who only want to cover Endeavour's departure on Sept. 17, the deadline to apply for credentials is Sept. 7. For U.S. journalists the application deadline is noon, Sept. 14.

All media accreditation requests must be submitted online at:

https://media.ksc.nasa.gov

After arriving at LAX, Endeavour will be removed from the SCA and moved Oct. 12-13 to the California Science Center for permanent public display. For more information about preparations for the shuttle's public display, visit:
