The news briefing participants will be:
Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator, Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington
Jim Green, director, Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters
Mary Voytek, astrobiology senior scientist at NASA Headquarters
Linda Spilker, Cassini project scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California
