Earth Day Media Briefing With NASA Deputy Administrator Garver
WASHINGTON -- Journalists are invited to attend an Earth Day visit by NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver to the agency's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., from 10 - 11:15 a.m. EDT on Monday, April 22.

Garver will tour a Goddard Earth science satellite control room and discuss Earth science priorities in the president's Fiscal Year 2014 NASA budget proposal submitted to Congress last week. Goddard Earth scientists will brief Garver on center's programs. A question-and-answer opportunity with reporters also will be held.

The FY 14 budget proposal will sustain NASA's vital role in helping us understand Earth's systems and climate, and the dynamics between our planet and the sun. These efforts will provide critical knowledge about our home planet and potential threats.

Media representatives who are U.S. citizens can participate in the event by contacting Mark Hess at or 301-286-6255, or Rob Gutro at or 301-286-4044. For information about Goddard and directions to the center, visit:
