Space Station Status Briefing Set for Noon Central Today

An International Space Station status briefing has been scheduled for 12 noon CST today originating from the Johnson Space Center in Houston to discuss the ongoing evaluation of a problem with the docking of a Progress cargo craft which arrived at the complex yesterday.

Jim Van Laak, manager of International Space Station operations and integration, will provide the latest information on the evaluation in the briefing.

This morning, the Space Shuttle Endeavour’s launch, previously planned for today, was delayed at least 24 hours by shuttle and station managers to allow further evaluations of the Progress docking.

The briefing will air live on NASA television and questions will be taken from media at participating NASA centers. NASA Television is available on GE-2, Transponder 9C, at 85 degrees West longitude, vertical polarization, with a frequency of 3880 MHz, and audio of 6.8 MHz.
