HOUSTON - The news briefings to preview the year's first space shuttle 
mission have been rescheduled to Friday, Jan. 29, at NASA's Johnson 
Space Center in Houston. NASA Television and the agency's Web site 
will broadcast the briefings live. Reporters may ask questions from 
participating NASA locations, including Kennedy Space Center, Fla.

The series of briefings will focus on shuttle Endeavour's STS-130 
mission to deliver the final module of the U.S. portion of the 
International Space Station. The briefings have been rescheduled to 
allow more analysis of engineering data from the test of 
high-pressure ammonia jumper hose assemblies that failed during a 
prelaunch test last week. The results will determine if there will be 
any impact to the shuttle mission. Teams continue to work toward a 
target launch of Feb. 7. 

Previously submitted requests from reporters for credentials to attend 
the briefings, or to participate in round-robin interviews with an 
STS-130 astronaut, will be adjusted for the new date and do not need 
to be resubmitted. Reporters who have not requested credentials and 
are planning to attend the briefings in Houston must contact the 
Johnson newsroom at 281-483-5111 by 6 p.m. EST, on Jan. 21.

Endeavour's six astronauts will be available for interviews at 
Johnson. New requests to reserve an interview slot should be 
submitted to Gayle Frere at 281-483-8645 by Jan. 21. 

The updated schedule of briefings (all times EST) is:
9 a.m. - STS-130 Video B-Roll feed
10 a.m. - STS-130 Mission Overview Briefing
11:30 a.m. - STS-130 Spacewalk Overview Briefing
12:30 p.m. - NASA TV Video File
2 p.m. - Crew News Conference
