Return to Flight Task Group Postpones Meeting

The Stafford-Covey Return to Flight Task Group is postponing its public meeting and news conference scheduled for Friday, May 6, in Houston. New dates for a public meeting and media briefing have not been set.

The Task Group postponed next week's meeting to give NASA the time to complete additional assessments of potential debris hazards and to provide the remaining data necessary to conduct final Group deliberations.

The Task Group is chartered by NASA to perform an independent assessment of the agency's implementation of the Return to Flight recommendations of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board.
