NASA Announces Space Shuttle Program Media Update
NASA will brief news media about the Space Shuttle Program at 2 p.m. EST, Tuesday, Nov. 22. The news conference will air live on the Web and NASA TV from the agency's Johnson Space Center, Houston.

Space Shuttle Program Manager Wayne Hale will discuss the program; provide an update on processing Discovery for the next mission (STS-121); and discuss work to complete testing and foam application on the orbiters' external fuel tanks.

Questions will be taken from media at participating NASA locations.
