Editor's update: According to NASA KSC PAO this 4:00 pm EDT event will start no earlier than 5:00 pm EDT. The teleconference will be audio-streamed live.


NASA's Space Shuttle Program managers will provide the status of preparations for the Return to Flight mission (STS-114) during a telephone news conference Friday, June 24. The teleconference is tentatively set to start no earlier than 4 p.m. EDT. It will follow Friday's Debris Verification Review (DVR) at NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC), Fla. The exact start time of the conference depends on the meeting's conclusion.

The DVR is an important milestone, as NASA looks to eliminate debris, including ice, from possibly damaging the Space Shuttle during liftoff.
