Update: NASA Provides Media Interviews For Space Station National Lab Award

NASA has canceled the previously scheduled news conference on Friday, Sept. 9, about the award of the organization that will manage the portion of the International Space Station operated as a U.S. national laboratory. The briefing was canceled because the launch of the agency's GRAIL mission has been postponed until Friday morning.

NASA will offer in-person media interview opportunities at 10 a.m. EDT on Friday at NASA Kennedy Space Center's Press Site in Florida. Reporters already on-site for the GRAIL launch will be able to interview:

- Waleed Abdalati, NASA chief scientist

- Mark Uhran, assistant associate administrator for the International Space Station

- Jeanne Becker, CASIS executive director
