Media Accreditation Under Way for Return to Flight Milestones
News media accreditation is under way for two of the most important milestones for the Return to Flight: Space Shuttle Discovery's move to the Vehicle Assembly Building and roll out to Launch Pad 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC). These two events are currently planned for later this month.

Media not currently possessing KSC credentials should submit their separate accreditation requests for both events via the new online accreditation Web site at:

Foreign nationals must submit requests no later than two weeks prior to the events. Access will be granted on a first-requested basis.

Accreditation is also under way for Discovery's Return to Flight, targeted for launch on May 15 in a launch window that extends to June 3.

Since dates and times of events are subject to change, updates are available by calling 321/867-2525.
