Saint-Hubert, April 20, 2001- The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) invites media representatives to participate in the only press conference allowing them to interview CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield and STS-100 Commander Kent Rominger live from the International Space Station. The press conference will take place on Friday, April 27, 2001 beginning at 3:11 p.m. EDT (TBC) at the CSA in Saint-Hubert. Media should be on site in Saint-Hubert by 2:45 p.m. EDT.
Media representatives are asked to confirm their attendance before Wednesday, April 25, at noon (EDT) by forwarding the following information to the CSA: name, phone number, e-mail address, affiliation, as well as the question they plan to ask (since the press conference will be limited to 8 minutes, the latter information is required to ensure that Col. Hadfield is not asked the same question twice).
Given the short duration of the press conference, only a limited number of media will have the opportunity to ask questions. However, all media are invited to participate, whether at the CSA or via NASA TV by logging on to the NASA TV satellite on GE-2, Transponder 9C at 85 degrees West longitude, vertical polarization, with a frequency of 3880 MHz and audio of 6.8 MHz. In addition, CSA spokespersons will be available for interviews at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, at the CSA's headquarters in Saint-Hubert, Quebec, and by phone upon request.
