BRIDENSTINE VISITS MICHOUD ASSEMBLY FACILITY, Aug 15, 2019, New Orleans, LA, 12:30 pm ET (11:30 am Central)

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine will visit NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility near New Orleans, LA on August 15, 2019 where the core stage of the Space Launch System (SLS) is built.  He will meet with members of the SLS team, which is preparing to add the final section to the core stage that will be used for the first SLS launch (Artemis-1), an uncrewed test flight of the rocket and an Orion capsule.

He will take questions from the media at 11:30 am Central Time (12:30 pm Eastern).  There is no indication in the announcement as to whether his remarks will be broadcast on NASA TV or NASA Live, but Bridenstine sometimes livestreams such events himself using his smartphone.  We will post more information if we get it, or check his Twitter feed:  @JimBridenstine
