NASA, Boeing, and ULA (United Launch Alliance) will host a news conference at 3 p.m. EDT to discuss Saturday’s scrubbed launch attempt of the agency’s Crew Flight Test due to an observation of a ground launch sequencer. The system was unsuccessful in verifying the sequencer’s necessary redundancy.

NASA will provide news conference coverage on NASA+, NASA Television, the NASA appYouTube, and the agency’s website.

The following will participate in the news conference:

  • Steve Stich, manager, NASA’s Commercial Crew Program
  • Mark Nappi, vice president and program manager, Commercial Crew Program, Boeing
  • Tory Bruno, president and CEO, ULA

Media may ask questions in person and via phone. Limited auditorium space will be available for in-person participation. For the dial-in number and passcode, media should contact the newsroom at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida at
