RELEASE
NASA - X-43A Pre-Flight Briefing Rescheduled For Nov. 10

Due to weather concerns and scheduling conflicts for use of the U.S. Navy's test range off the Southern California coast, the final flight of NASA's X-43A hypersonic research aircraft has been rescheduled for no earlier than Monday, Nov. 15.

The briefing will be carried live on NASA Television, and webcast at http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html.
