NASA Mission STS-94
This is a reflight of the STS-83 Microgravity Science Laboratory (MSL) 
mission. MSL was originally launched on April 4, 1997 at 2:20pm EST and
was intended to be on orbit for 15 days, 16 hours. The mission was cut
short due to a problem with Fuel Cell #2 and Columbia landed on 4/8/97
after 3 days 23 hours.

Mars Pathfinder
A pre-landing briefing on Mars Pathfinder and its science
objectives at Mars will be held at JPL on Tuesday, July 1, at 1
p.m. EDT.  If the STS-94 launch remains scheduled for this date,
this briefing will not be shown live on NASA TV.  A taped
rebroadcast of this briefing currently is planned for later that
evening and the next morning.
