Non-U.S. media also must bring passports.
So this conference is worthy of global news coverage?
How often do NASA hold conferences in this manner?

If it was something that was very critical they would not announce it all until it was about to happen. I think they would wait because they would cause absolute chaos in the world.
They would still need time to get the chosen ones into the bunkers without interference lol.
Just saying IMO.
NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, which was launched and deployed by Space Shuttle Columbia on July 23, 1999, is the most sophisticated X-ray observatory built to date. Chandra is designed to observe X-rays from high-energy regions of the universe, such as the remnants of exploded stars. The two images of the Crab Nebula supernova remnant and its pulsar shown below illustrate how higher resolution can reveal important new features.

I haven't read through the entire thread, but surely someone's mentioned by now that this could be as simple as them saying they're not going to send any more space shuttles up and end the program where it stands. Its a 30 year old program that has changed humanity in a lot of ways due to all the recent problems and delays. I think that's worthy of a global news conference..edit on 11/11/10 by Apophis because: (no reason given)edit on 11/11/10 by Apophis because: (no reason given)
