NASA Moves Endeavour, Space Station Crew News Conference
HOUSTON - The news conference with the 10 crew members aboard space shuttle Endeavour and the International Space Station, originally scheduled for Monday morning, has been moved to an hour earlier, and will begin at 11:18 p.m. EDT on Sunday, March 23.

The change in time was made to improve the downlink television capability from the station.

Media may ask questions from NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and NASA Headquarters in Washington. The phone bridge used for after-business-hours briefings will not be available. A portion of the news conference will be set aside for Japanese reporters at the Johnson Space Center and a French radio network selected by the European Space Agency.

To participate in the news conference, U.S. journalists must call the public affairs office at their preferred NASA center by 5 p.m. EDT, Friday, March 21.

NASA Television will provide live coverage of the 40-minute news conference. For NASA TV downlink, schedule and streaming video information, visit:
