NASA Presents Exploration Program Update
NASA Associate Administrator for the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate Scott Horowitz and Constellation program manager Jeff Hanley will brief the media about the exploration program and the work being assigned to NASA centers at 11:30 a.m. PDT Monday, June 5. The briefing will be in the NASA headquarters auditorium in Washington and broadcast live on the Web and on NASA TV. Bay Area reporters can view the broadcast and ask questions from the main auditorium, Bldg. N-201, at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif.

Following the broadcast, there will be a 'media round table' at 12:30 p.m. PDT in the Jack Boyd Committee Room in the NASA Ames Administration Building, N-200, which is adjacent to the main auditorium. Reporters may query NASA Ames Director Simon "Pete" Worden and other senior Ames officials about Ames’s specific roles in the Constellation Program, NASA’s effort to return humans to the moon and later travel to Mars. In addition, managers and principal investigators will be on hand to discuss the program's implications for the future at Ames.
