NASA Adds Addendum to Shuttle Implementation Plan
An addendum to the tenth and latest version of "NASA's Implementation Plan for Space Shuttle Return to Flight and Beyond" now is publicly available on the Internet at:

The addendum highlights activities that have taken place in the last month since the implementation plan was last updated, including last week's Flight Readiness Review meeting for the Return to Flight mission, STS-114. The meeting scheduled Space Shuttle Discovery's Return to Flight launch for July 13.

The implementation plan is a periodically updated document. It demonstrates the agency's progress in safely returning Space Shuttles to flight and implementing the recommendations of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board.

Previous versions of the plan also are archived on NASA's Return to Flight Web site.
