 EXPEDITION FOUR SPACEWALK LIVE COVERAGE ON NASA TV JAN. 14

 The first spacewalk planned for the Expedition Four crew aboard the
 International Space Station will be covered on NASA Television, with
 commentary beginning at 3:30 p.m. EST Monday, Jan. 14.

 Russian Commander Yury Onufrienko and American Flight Engineer Carl Walz
 will exit the Pirs Docking Compartment at approximately 3:50 p.m. EST for
 a scheduled six-hour spacewalk, or Extravehicular Activity (EVA). The two
 will move a Russian cargo crane to the Zarya module of the complex for
 future assembly work. American Flight Engineer Dan Bursch will operate
 the Canadarm2 robotic arm from inside the space station and act as
 spacewalk choreographer.

 Up to three more spacewalks are planned during the five-month Expedition
 Four mission. The next is scheduled for Jan. 25 by Onufrienko and Bursch
 to continue the external outfitting of the Zvezda Service Module.

 NASA TV is available on GE-2, Transponder 9C at 85 degrees West
 longitude, vertical polarization, with a frequency of 3880 MHz, and audio
 of 6.8 MHz.

 Additional information about the International Space Station and
 Expedition Four is available on the Internet at: http:/
