Update, May 16 (Saturday):  The White House issued a press release at 9:44 am ET today announcing that this 7th meeting of the National Space Council will take place on May 19 at 10:30 am ET.  It will take place at NASA HQ and will be livestreamed on NASA TV.  The agenda has not been released, but it is taking place just 8 days before the scheduled launch of the SpaceX Demo-2 mission, the first flight of astronauts to Earth orbit from American soil since the final space shuttle launch in 2011, a milestone event that is likely to be one focus of attention at the meeting.
