NASA DEPUTY ADMINISTRATOR MEETS WITH COMMERCIAL SPACE INNOVATORS

WASHINGTON -- NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver will travel
to Las Vegas and Boulder, Colo., this week to meet with leaders
of two commercial space companies, Bigelow Aerospace and Sierra
Nevada Corp., and tour their facilities. NASA is partnering with
the commercial sector to develop innovative technologies to
ensure that the U.S. remains competitive in future space
endeavors.

On Friday, Feb. 4, Garver will tour Bigelow Aerospace facilities
at 1899 W. Brooks Ave. in North Las Vegas. NASA has been
discussing potential partnership opportunities with Bigelow for
its inflatable habitat technologies. Garver and the company's
President Robert Bigelow will hold a news conference at 1 p.m.
PST. To attend, media representatives must contact Mike Gold at
mgold.nul


On Saturday, Feb. 5, Garver will meet with Mark Sirangello,
chairman of Sierra Nevada Space Systems. Afterward, she will
tour the company's facility responsible for spacecraft
mechanical subsystems, components and satellite manufacturing in
Louisville, Colo. Garver also will visit a test facility at the
University of Colorado at Boulder to observe progress on Sierra
Nevada's Dream Chaser spacecraft. It is under development with
support from NASA's Commercial Crew Development Program to
provide crew transportation to and from low Earth orbit.

A news conference will be held at 11:30 a.m. MST in the CU-
Boulder College of Engineering and Applied Science, Civil
Engineering Building, located on the northeast corner of
Colorado Ave. and Regent Drive. To attend, news media must
contact Teresa Jones at 720-256-7073 or teresa.jones.nul
