NASA UPDATES SPACE SHUTTLE ATLANTIS PRE-LAUNCH EVENTS

News conferences, events and operating hours for the NASA Kennedy 
Space Center News Center are set for the Sept. 6 launch of Space 
Shuttle Atlantis on the STS-115 mission to the International Space 
Station. The first countdown for Atlantis' launch was stopped Tuesday 
because of Tropical Depression Ernesto. 

On Saturday, Sept. 2, the six STS-115 crew members are scheduled to 
arrive at Kennedy at 10:30 a.m. EDT. 
 Commander Brent Jett will make a brief statement to the media. NASA Television will have 
live coverage of the arrival and Jett's remarks. 

NASA TV will also broadcast live a countdown status briefing and news 
conference on Monday, Sept. 4. Complete listings of news briefing 
times, participants, Kennedy News Center and media credentialing 
hours of operation are available in the online version of this media 
advisory at:
