NASA TO ANNOUNCE NEW AGREEMENT FOR KENNEDY FACILITIES MONDAY

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Journalists are invited to attend a major 
announcement of a new partnership between NASA's Kennedy Space Center 
in Florida and an outside organization that open NASA's facilities to 
U.S. commercial space launch service providers, create jobs and help 
American companies regain leadership in the global space economy. The 
announcement will take place on Monday, Oct. 31, at 10 a.m. EDT at 
NASA Kennedy's Orbiter Processing Facility-3 and will be carried live 
on NASA television. 

The new partnership was developed following a Notice of Availability 
NASA issued in January. The notice was used to identify interest from 
industry for space processing and support facilities at Kennedy. 
These facilities have become available for space-related commercial 
use following the end of the Space Shuttle Program. 

Journalists must arrive at Kennedy's Press Site by 9 a.m. for 
transportation to the event. Journalists without NASA Kennedy 
accreditation need to apply for credentials by 10 a.m. Oct 30. New 
international media accreditation for this event is closed. Reporters 
must apply for credentials online at: 

https://media.ksc.nasa.gov 

For journalists unable to attend the event, NASA and partner 
organization managers will hold a media teleconference at 12 p.m. To 
participate, journalists must RSVP to Amber Philman at 
amber.n.philman@xxxxxxxx by 9 a.m. Oct. 31 to receive the call-in 
number and pass code. Reporters must call into the teleconference by 
11:50 a.m. to join. Audio of the teleconference also will be streamed 
over the Internet from NASA's website at:
