NASA ADMINISTRATOR AND SPACEX CEO TO ADDRESS MEDIA AT SPACEX FACILITIES IN TEXAS WEDNESDAY AND CALIFORNIA THURSDAY

WASHINGTON -- NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and SpaceX CEO and 
Chief Designer Elon Musk will participate in a media availability at 
11:30 a.m. CDT Wednesday, June 13, in the SpaceX facility at 1 Rocket 
Rd. in McGregor, Texas. Bolden and Musk will be there to view the 
Dragon spacecraft that returned to Earth May 31 following the first 
successful mission by a private company to carry supplies to the 
International Space Station. 

Bolden and Musk also will participate in a media availability at 9 
a.m. PDT, Thursday, June 14, in SpaceX's headquarters at 1 Rocket Rd. 
in Hawthorne, Calif. They will view the first Dragon spacecraft 
recovered by SpaceX following its December 2010 orbital test flight. 
On this mission, SpaceX became the first commercial company to 
recover a spacecraft after it orbited Earth. Bolden and Musk also 
will view a prototype Dragon spacecraft being designed to carry 
astronauts to the space station as part of NASA's Commercial Crew 
Program. 
Media representatives wishing to attend either availability should 
email media@xxxxxxxxxx for information on access. 

The two Dragon orbital flights were SpaceX demonstration missions 
under NASA's Commercial Orbital Transportation Services Program 
(COTS). The program provides investments intended to lead to regular 
resupply missions to the International Space Station and stimulate 
the commercial space industry in the United States.
