NASA SETS SPACE STATION STATUS UPDATE BRIEFING FOR MONDAY

HOUSTON -- NASA Television will broadcast an International Space 
Station status update briefing at 9 a.m. CDT on Monday, Aug. 29. 
Michael Suffredini, space station program manager, will provide the 
latest information on the status of the station following the Aug. 24 
failure of the Russian Progress 44 resupply vehicle to reach orbit. 

The Russian Federal Space Agency has established a commission to 
assess the root cause of the failure, to develop a plan of corrective 
action, and determine any implications for the launch of crews to the 
station on similar Soyuz rockets. Suffredini also will discuss the 
status of the commission's investigation and preliminary plans by 
NASA and its international partners to resume crew and cargo 
launches. 

NASA TV and the agency's website will broadcast the briefing live from 
the Johnson Space Center. Reporters may ask questions from 
participating NASA locations, and should contact their preferred NASA 
center to confirm participation. The phone bridge at Johnson will be 
available for reporters to participate by calling the newsroom at 
281-483-5111 by 8:45 a.m.
