The news conference follows the traditional Flight Readiness Review, a
thorough assessment of preparations for the mission. The Aug. 15-16
meeting is designed to produce a number of key decisions about
Atlantis' mission, STS-115, including selection of an official launch
date.

Briefing participants:

-- Michael Griffin, NASA administrator
-- Bill Gerstenmaier, associate administrator for Space Operations
-- Wayne Hale, Space Shuttle Program manager
-- Mike Leinbach, NASA launch director

The specific start time of the news conference depends on the
meeting's conclusion. Questions will be taken from media at
participating NASA locations. Media must contact NASA centers by 5
p.m. EDT, Tuesday, Aug. 15 for access information.
