Rationale for Exception to Less Than 15 Day Notice: This event is directly related to scheduling constraints imposed by the nation's Space Shuttle Program return to flight launch activities. Critical data necessary for the Task Group to complete its assessment was made available based on necessary milestones required for the agency to ensure a safe return to flight. The proximity of those milestones to the new STS-114 launch date prevents the Task Group from scheduling its last public meeting within the 15 day notice requirement.
