WASHINGTON — Media representatives are invited to participate in a teleconference at 11 a.m. EDT, Oct. 11, for reaction to Monday’s anticipated signing of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Authorization Act of 2010 by President Barack Obama.

The President is expected to sign the bill later this afternoon after it was passed overwhelmingly by Congress last week. It provides bipartisan support for NASA’s new direction in space exploration.

Participants in the media teleconference include:

* NASA Administrator Charles Bolden
* NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver
* U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, Florida
* U.S. Rep. Suzanne Kosmas, Florida’s 24th District
* Former Augustine Committee member, physicist, and former astronaut Sally Ride

Media representatives who want to participate in the teleconference should contact Katherine Trinidad either by telephone at 202-281-8171 or email at katherine.trinidad@nasa.gov.
