*Station Safety Report Released*

The International Space Station Independent Safety Task Force has issued 
its final report. It was released Tuesday simultaneously to Congress, 
NASA and the public. The Congressionally-mandated task force was 
chartered last year under Section 1281 of the NASA Authorization Act of 
2005. The task force was charged with reviewing the International Space 
Station program to assess potential vulnerabilities that could threaten 
the station or its crew or lead to it being prematurely abandoned.

"I wish to thank the members of the International Space Station 
Independent Safety Task Force for their hard work," said NASA 
Administrator Michael Griffin. "At NASA no activity is more important 
than safely conducting our space missions, including our expeditionary 
missions on board the International Space Station. I look forward to 
reading the task force’s report."
