NASA TV AIRS SHUTTLE CREW MEDIA SESSION AND SPACEWALK THURSDAY
WASHINGTON - Two human spaceflight events will air simultaneously on
separate NASA Television digital channels Thursday, Feb. 22.
At 5 a.m. EST(1000 GMT) two crew members of the International Space Station
will begin the fourth spacewalk in the last three weeks. During the
six-hour spacewalk, Expedition 14 Commander Michael Lopez Alegria and
Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin will work to free a stuck antenna on
the Progress 23 supply spacecraft. Coverage of the spacewalk on NASA
TV's public, education and media channels begins at 4 a.m.(0900 GMT)
The media Channel will break away temporarily from the spacewalk
coverage to air a question and answer session between reporters and
the STS-117 crew at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., at 7:40 a.m.
The crew will be in Florida to participate in the launch countdown
dress rehearsal, known as the Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test.
The shuttle crew includes Commander Rick Sturckow, Pilot Lee
Archambault and Mission Specialists Patrick Forrester, Steven
Swanson, John "Danny" Olivas and Jim Reilly.
Coverage of the spacewalk will continue uninterrupted on the public
channel and will resume on the media channel immediately following
the shuttle crew event.
