NASA to Make Major Announcement Today About Astronaut Transport to the International Space Station

NASA will make a major announcement today at 4 p.m. EDT regarding the return of human spaceflight launches to the United States. The agency will make the announcement during a news conference from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The event will be broadcast live on NASA Television and the agency's website.
A brief question-and-answer session with reporters on site will take place during the event. Media will be able to ask more detailed questions related to the program in a teleconference shortly afterward.

News conference participants at Kennedy are:
- NASA Administrator Charles Bolden
- Kennedy Space Center Director Bob Cabana

Media should arrive at Kennedy’s Press Site by 3:30 p.m. for transportation to the event. Accreditation for international media is closed for this event. U.S. media must apply for credentials by noon.
Two forms of government-issued identification are required to receive a badge; one form must have a photograph, such as a driver’s license or passport. Badges will be available for pickup at the Press Accreditation Office on State Road 3, Merritt Island, from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. Media badges will be valid for access to Kennedy’s Press Site through Gate 2 on State Road 3 and through Gate 3 on State Road 405, east of the Kennedy Space

Center Visitor Complex. Journalists needing accreditation should apply online at:

The NASA Commercial Crew Program Facebook page updated their cover photo--no hints on the winner but the suit looks like a shuttle era version  ;)

Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."
