NASA HOSTS BRIEFING ON NEW OBSERVATIONS OF INTERSTELLAR MATTER

WASHINGTON -- NASA will host a Science Update at 1 p.m. EST, Tuesday, 
Jan. 31, 2012, to discuss new analysis from NASA's Interstellar 
Boundary Explorer (IBEX) spacecraft of material from outside our 
solar system and the interstellar boundary region that surrounds our 
home in space. 

The interstellar boundary region shields our solar system from most of 
the dangerous galactic cosmic radiation that otherwise would enter 
the solar system from interstellar space.

The briefing will take place at NASA Headquarters in the James E. Webb 
Auditorium, located at 300 E St. SW, Washington, and will air live on 
NASA Television and the agency's website. 

Briefing panelists are:

-- David McComas, IBEX principal investigator and assistant vice 
president of the Space Science and Engineering Division at Southwest 
Research Institute in San Antonio
-- Priscilla Frisch, senior scientist, Department of Astronomy and 
Astrophysics at the University of Chicago 
- Eberhard Möbius, professor, Space Science Center and Department of 
Physics University of New Hampshire and currently visiting professor 
at the Space Science and Applications Group Los Alamos National 
Laboratory, N.M.
-- Seth Redfield, assistant professor, Astronomy Department, Wesleyan 
University, Middletown, Conn.

Reporters unable to attend may ask questions from participating NASA 
centers or by telephone. To participate by phone, reporters must 
contact Dwayne Brown at 202-358-1726 or dwayne.c.brown@xxxxxxxx by 11 
a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31.
