HOUSTON – NASA managers will discuss the status of the International Space Station, including the latest on an external cooling loop leak that developed Thursday, during a televised briefing today at 3 p.m. CDT (4 p.m. EDT).

Journalists may ask questions from participating NASA locations and through a phone bridge by calling the Johnson newsroom at 281-483-5111 no later than 2:45 p.m.
