Media accreditation is open for the launch of NASA’s next commercial cargo resupply flight to the International Space Station.

SpaceX is currently targeting no earlier than Dec. 9 for liftoff of its Dragon spacecraft atop a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) in Florida. This will be the company’s sixth visit to the space station and fifth commercial resupply mission, delivering several tons of supplies, including new science experiments and technology research.

Prelaunch and launch activities for media will take place at CCAFS and nearby at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. International media without U.S. citizenship must apply for credentials to cover activities by Nov. 2 to gain access to CCAFS for the launch. Accreditation is open until 4:30 p.m. Nov. 17 for international media without U.S. citizenship who do not need access to CCAFS. The deadline for U.S. media to apply for credentials is 4:30 p.m. Nov. 21.

All media accreditation requests must be submitted online at:

https://media.ksc.nasa.gov

International journalists must submit a scanned copy of their “I” visa and passport. Green card holders must submit a scanned copy of their card. Questions about accreditation and all scanned documents should be directed to Jennifer Horner at jennifer.p.horner@nasa.gov, 321-867-6598 or 321-867-2468.

All media representatives must present two forms of legal, government identification to access Kennedy. One form must be a photo ID, such as a passport or driver’s license.
